How to Use Import Specifications in MS Access
Importing txt or csv files can be a challenge whenever your incoming datatypes become complicated. To make things worse, it seems like you need to specify all of your import options each time you import a similar kind of file. This is where IMPORT SPECIFICATIONS are very handy! This is a little-known feature of MS Access that is easy to overlook whenever you’re preparing repetitive imports of the same kind of data. If you know how to create a proper import spec, your life will be MUCH easier. Not only can you use an import spec each time you want to manually import the same kind of file, you can also use the spec as part of your automated process, to make sure the data imports cleanly each time.
