Good morning. My name is XXXXX XXXXX X will assist you with this. We are going to go through a few processes.
1st. make sure your Windows update are current.
2nd. Go to a command prompt and type
Let it run to completion.
3rd. From the command prompt run:
Regsvr32.exe "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\DAO\Dao360.dll"
4th. Retry your import.
If your import fails from here, install SQL Server Express 2008 (from MS site). This should repair and update ant MDAC/WDAC issues.
Let me know.
These folders are hidden as they are system folders. You do not want to unhide them. Step 2 from above will replace missing system dlls, and if it is necessary to install sql express, the folders will be updated with the latest version of files necessary to handle importing data.
Have you gone through the recommended steps as of yet?
I tried step 3 & system error cannont find path - I made a " DAO" folder & copied dao360.dll into it & reran step 3 & it registered successfully as per the copy in program(x86) \ado folder & was successful ..
I also installed SQL server 2008 R2 - & still getting the error ..
yesterday I uninstalled MS office 2007 & today I installed Office 2003 PRO & still got same error in ACCESS 2003 when trying to IMPORT an XCEL 2003 spreedsheet--
searching the Internet many times shows this is a very common problem & no sign of positive FIXES
I think I will OPT out too - it looks like another microsoft blue !! - reading dozens of reviews of this problem on the internet shows theres no solution - its a wonder folk dont demand their money back after purchasing MS OFFICE !!-
anyway I'm still happy to cover ur costs for the time & effort given me - many thanks
have solved the problem in Windows XP after uninstalling office 2007 & 2003 - reinstalled office 2003 & then the upgrade to office 2007 & registered those 2 files u recommended & alls well -
did the same in the windows 7 ultimate 64 bit & still the same error message - so obviously windows 7 64 Ultimate has a problem - any suggestions ??
On the win 7, what happens if you just load o2k3?
Sorry, Office 2003.
I found this article & amended the line in my registry link "\0\win32 " - but no difference - did not load the " HEX " part of the article - did try but did not load/install into the registry div>.http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/office/forum/office_2007-access/error-in-loading-dll-in-access-2007/99555025-b21c-4585-b74e-9d1db61a9d2a.I also tried ur suggestion about updating MDAC - but could'nt find a source that was strait forward - what do u think ??cheersbob
ebbe I'm stupid !!? - same as last night - error displays :-
Cannot import " bob.reg " - The specified file is not a registry script-
You can only import Binary files from within the registry editor..
when u say 1st line - if u mean the line beginning [HKEY --- ; it came up with same error
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
u r not going to believe it !! - IT WORKS !!!
I was all set to chuck WIN 7 out
many thanks again for ur help - my next step was to install a suggested JET fix - but will leave it -
no new post - yes we have fixed the problem - many thanks - I have learned a few things !!
