I did this sucessfully a year or two ago.

Firstly, I am assuming that Paradox is installed on the PC you are running this on.
Secondly, when during the process is this happening and what exactly does the error message say?

I am guessing that you are using Windows XP, and there is a chance that your installation of Access might be corrupted.

You could try and repair or reinstall Access, and if that doesn't fix the probelm, it might be worth looking to see if you can find a different computer an older OS on.

You are correct I'm using Windows XP. I tried reinstalling Acess and I'm still having a problem.
The strange thing is that I was able to import before.
If I create a new database and try to import the same file I was able to successfully before, I get an error now.
It just doesn't make any sense. Any ideas?

I've had same problem and i've been told that for versions of Paradox after
5.0 it will be necessary a different drive. Although i've seen Paradox 7.0
running with Windows98 with no problems.
Regards Penta.
