Hi,

I have saved import steps in Access. In previous versions of Access - I was able to view the SQL steps of the import. Please offer how I can view the SQL steps in Access 2007?

Thanks

Not sure if this will help, but it does show you how to run a saved import/export operation:

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/access-help/run-a-saved-import-or-export-operation-HA001226020.aspx?CTT=3

I would assume at that point you could review the steps the operation will be using.

In former versions of Acces - when a file was imported/exported, I was able to view the SQL coding. I can no longer see this.

There's not really any sql coding involved in importing/exporting a file.

Can you describe how you did this in earlier versions? Perhaps we would have a better understanding then.

Actually, in thinking more - I viewed the code in SAS - so I was confused with earlier versions of Access.

Sorry for all the time this question took.

However, if by chance you know a SQL code to import/export, please feel free to share.

Thank you for everyone's efforts and time.

Here is some code for importing and exporting text files and Excel worksheets:
strPath = Application.CurrentProject.Path
strWorkbook= strPath & "Customers.xls"

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet transfertype:=acExport, _
   spreadsheettype:=acSpreadsheetTypeExcel8, _
   tablename:="qryCustomers", _
   FileName:=strWorkbook, _
   hasfieldnames:=True

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet transfertype:=acImport, _
   spreadsheettype:=acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, _
   tablename:=strTable, _
   FileName:=strWorkbook, _ 
   hasfieldnames:=True, _
   Range:=strRange

========================

Private Sub cmdExportTextDelimited_Click()

   DoCmd.TransferText transfertype:=acExportDelim, _
      tablename:="tblCustomers", _
      FileName:="D:\Documents\Examples\Export Delimited.csv", _
      hasfieldnames:=True

End Sub

Private Sub cmdImportTextDelimited_Click()

   DoCmd.TransferText transfertype:=acImportDelim, _
      tablename:="tblMonthlyData", _
      FileName:="D:\Documents\Examples\Monthly Data.csv", _
      hasfieldnames:=False

End Sub

Private Sub cmdExportTextFixed_Click()

   DoCmd.TransferText transfertype:=acExportFixed, _
      hasfieldnames:=True, _
      tablename:="tblCustomersLimited", _
      specificationname:="CL", _
      FileName:="D:\Documents\Examples\Export Fixed.txt"
      
End Sub

Private Sub cmdImportTextFixed_Click()

   DoCmd.TransferText transfertype:=acImportFixed, _
      specificationname:="CL", _
      tablename:="tblImportFixed", FileName:="New Hires.txt", _
      hasfieldnames:=True

End Sub

For some imports and exports, you need a specification, which is prepared by doing the import (or export) manually, and saving the setting to a specification file (use the Advanced button in the Import Text dialog to do this).
