How are you "attempting to import a large CSV file"?

This error indicates that you may be perhaps using a third party control do do this...
Please confirm...
TonyEFAuthor Commented:
I open access and use the access import process...
Jeffrey CoachmanCommented:
I could not replicate your issue:

Does this occur for all users?
In all databases?

What are your network security setting for the DB's folder?

Basic things to try:

Compact/Repair the DB
Create a blank new DB and import all the Objects
TonyEFAuthor Commented:
this is a new database never used befoe, ju created to import this file.
the db folder is on the local machine and I am an admin to the machine.

I am running Windows 7..
Does the Import Wizard start at all? If not, then it sounds like the Import Wizard is not in a trusted location. In my installation of Access2007, the following path is automatically set as a trusted location:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\ACCWIZ\
with the description:
Access default location: Wizard Databases

Do you have this or something like it in your Trusted Locations?

Try searching for the file:
on your system. I'm not sure that's the correct wizard, but that is a wizard with the folder that should be trusted.

pteranodon72 that is exactly the issue, however in windows 7 the path is as follow:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12\ACCWIZ
