Hi

I am importing from 20 identical Excel 2003 Workbooks in to an Access 2003 database.
From each workbook I am importing a range from 2 spreadsheets
On 1 workbook 1 sheet gets the error message

"Overflow" and nothing is imported

On 1 workbook the same sheet gets the error message

"Could not update: Currently Locked"

I can see nothing different in the data or the structure of the workbook/sheet

Have you any ideas?
Regards, Aaron

Hi Aaron,

The error "Overflow" usually occurs if the Access number data type can’t store the number value.

e.g. The MS Access data type "INTEGER" can handle only values up to 32.767! If you want to store greater values you have to use the data type "LONG INTEGER" = Standard in Access.

Please be sure that your data types are great enough.
Best wishes
