the easiest fix would be this ...

Open your table in Access2010, and then use Import/Export to convert table from Access to SQL 2005

as long as the access database isnt corrupted it convert fine and then you can import into Sql Server :)

This is a very large table, I find it's a lot quicker to import from the SQL Server than export from Access. I didn't have any problem import the same table that is in Access 2003, but now I have this table converted in Access 2010 and I'm getting this error.

i unserstand.
 The reason you had no issues before is you had in 2003. Its versioning :(

my apologies
the most painless way to do this is the suggestion above which is opening it in 2010 and using import /export to convert it back to 05 :(

This option isn't possible either because I no longer have Access 2003, it's taken away. I only have Access 2010 and I need to be able to import it from the SQL Server 2005.

I've attached the error in the doc.

here is an explanation  to the software :)
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=28763

this is a free tool :)


SQL Server Migration Assistant (SSMA) is a free supported tool from Microsoft that simplifies database migration process from Access to SQL Server. SSMA for Access automates conversion of Microsoft Access database objects to SQL Server database objects, loads the objects into SQL Server, and then migrates data from Microsoft Access to SQL Server.
 SSMA for Access v5.2 is designed to support migration from Microsoft Access 97 and higher to all editions of SQL Server 2005, SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2012, and SQL Azure.

So if I install this then I'll be able to import Access 2010 tables to the Sql Server 2005?
