how do I import alpha/numeric data from a delimited text file?

    I am still having problems importing an alpha/numeric data field into an
    existing table. The numeric cells import but the alpha/numeric do not. The
    table cells are blank and an error table is created which slowly increases
    the size of the database (not what I want to do). The data comes from the ^
    delimited text file into an access table and then some of the columns are
    moved to a final access table which is used for processing/delivering the
    data to user. The column in both tables are set to text.

    If anyone has suggestions, it will be greatly appreciated.

    Sounds like it's trying to put the alphaumeric data into a numeric field at
    some point... you say that the columns in both tables are set to text - is
    the import using a saved import specification, or is it being done in VBA
    code? If the former, then maybe the import specification still says that the
    field is text, even though it's been subsequently changed in the target table?

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
