    I create a table via importing from a csv file. I have a field that does not
    populate in the table. Could it be because the number of characters ? Here's
    one that was in the csv file but did not populate on the access table:

    0510050000028556

    Thank you in advance.

    If you want to keep the leading zero's , you need a create text type field,
    and change the size of it
    If you don't need the leading zero's and you want the type of the field to
    be number, most likely it's long or integer now, change it to Double Or single

    I hope that helped
    Good Luck
