I am trying to import a bunch of DBF files into Access tables (well ultimately SQL tables).  I understand all the issues with the docmd.transferdatabase command, and that would suit me fine.  The problem is that when I run that command my Access database just closes.  No error, no feedback.  I have tried it with MS Access 2000 and MS Access 2003.   I have tried using a variety of the DBF files (all of which open fine in Excel btw).   According to the header record, they are dBase III format.     I cannot even use the manual "import table" functionality (same result, access closes with no feedback).
