Subscript out of range usually means that you dont have the same amount of tables.  You have to think, if one of the fields is an auto incrementing ID then you dont need to import that in, it will auto increment on its own but without seeing any of the files or code not much more help I could offer you...

You could easily write a .net application that opens one db and just while not rs.eoof then loop through and add it, then you could even conversion-type the data for consistency.

Can you give us a bit more information about the table to be imported?
(Fields, Datatypes, ...etc)

Can you also tell us how you are doing the update?

Typically you get this error when importing Excel files when the number of fields do not match between the two tables
