Does anyone know why I can't import from Access - its grayed out.  I've tried this in both 2007 and 2003 versions with it being grayed out in both.

Any ideas

Is this greyed out in all databases, or just this one?

Did this ever work?

So it just happened recently...
Are you aware of any Auto-updates being installed?

Is the option greyed out on all computers with Access installed?

Make sure you have all your Service Packs installed for Windows and Office.

I researched this and could find no references to this issue...

Try uninstalling Access/Office, then reinstalling it (making sure to select "Full/Complete" Install)
