Default Transfering Import Specs

Hi All,
I have 2 Access databases sat on a server. One I get to via one PC using Office '97, the other I get to using a PC running Office XP. The older version is becoming obsolete but has a very useful table import spec which I could really do with on the newer version.

Does anyone know a way I can transfer the spec from one db to the other? There are about 70 fixed length fields in it that I'd prefer not to have to reenter/recalculate.

Ta.

I am assuming that when you use this import spec, it imports into a table in your database. In your XP database database, go to import the 'table' from your 97 database and when you get the dialogue box for selection of the items, select the table and also clic the Options button. This will open a drop down where you can select Import/Export Specs. After selecting OK, your import specs should be in the new database.

HTH,

Beth

Yup, it sure is. And I had to 'know how' and then was able to remember! I guess I'm not that old after all, eh?

Have a good one.
