Default 2 versions of Access

I've got a bit of a problem - which really annoys me - and I'm hoping someone can help me out...

I've got both Access XP and Access 97 installed, which is fine - both work as they should apart from one vitally important thing:
XP can't import/link from non-Access databases anymore!
So what I have to do is make a Access 97 file, import the table (for example, from Excel), then open my XP app, and import it from the 97 one.
I've searched around support.microsoft, but can't find any fixes.
Anyone else come across this before (and know how to fix it?)

Steven, the first thing I would try is to reinstall the Access XP software.

The types of files Access can import are defined in the Jet Registry entries, 97 and XP use different versions of Jet so I imagine the entries have been defined in one, but not the other.
