I need to be able to import a csv file into an access table while allowing the user to browse to the file.  I have a file picker dialog process that allows the user to do so and although the process runs without any error messages, no data is imported.  

I am aware of how to create an import specification and running the saved import from the external data tab works, but I need to be able to run this from the user interface and the file path will not always be the same, nor will the file name.
