Importing csv to Access Table

Importing csv to Access Table

Importing csv to Access Table

I'm using Docmd.transfertext to import in a .csv file. For one of my columns in the test csv file, the entries were S1, S2, S3, etc... After I imported the file into a database table, access converted this column of data into a currency field $1.00,$2.00,$3.00, etc... I didn't use a specification file in my docmd.transfertext command b/c I wanted to keep the column names flexible. After the file gets imported in, I have a subroutine to check for the existence of the correct field names. Is there a way to prevent Access from converting this text field to currency.

RE: Importing csv to Access Table

It sounds like you are asking about VBA, and if so you chose the wrong forum.
