I'm trying to use application.importxml in Access but it just seems to crash when I run it: -

Dim Xfile As String
Xfile = "C:\Temp\20140717_13220817778969.XML"
Application.ImportXML Xfile, acAppendData

Open in new window

Also tried AcStructureandData option. Error trapping not working, can anyone help?

Are you defining what acAppendData should be?
Dim Xfile As String
Dim Const acAppendData = 2
Xfile = "C:\Temp\20140717_13220817778969.XML"

Application.ImportXML Xfile, acAppendData

Open in new window

This often occurs when the XML is malformed, or if Access cannot read it. For example, I believe Access expects there to be an outer element that refers to a table in your database.

IMO, you're much better off using the DOMDocument objects to work with XML. It does take more time to develop, but you have a LOT more control over the data. Here's a link that will help you to get started: http://www.databasejournal.com/features/msaccess/article.php/3310901/Import-XML-Data-Into-Microsoft-Access.htm
