    Hi. I have a database that takes an Excel spreadsheet from an outside
    vendor (have no control on the spreadsheet format) and imports it into
    a database. This process updates records for custoemrs.

    The problem is the code works PERFECTLY in Access 2003. I take that
    same database and open it in Access 2007 or 2010 and the import
    process is not consistent. The Policy Number field which is
    alphanumeric field and set to a text field in Access will drop the
    entries if they have letters in the field. Treating it like a number
    field. In Access 2003, it imports 100% correctly.

    This is the line of code:

    DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9,
    "AAExportData", strImportFilePath & strImportFileName, True

    Another thing, if I manually import it in to Access specifically
    stating that field is a text field it will work. Even if I save
    import specs it doesn't seem to work.

    Should the code be different for Access 2007/2010?
