Numeric Field Overflow

(OP)
I'm importing an Excel spreadsheet into Access.  I get the error: Numeric Field Overflow.  Can anyone shed some light on this one for me please?

RE: Numeric Field Overflow

Check the data type of the Access field being filled. You may be trying to put a number into a field that has a limit set. Ex: putting a long into a field that is defined as an integer.

Thanks, I got it figured out late last night.  You're right, I was trying to import a spreadsheet that had null values into a number field and it didn't like that.
