Cannot import .xls file (Access 2k)

P: n/a
G
Hi, I'm trying to import an Excel spreadsheet into Access 2000. I
select File>GetExternal Data>Import, but when I get to the dialog box
that asks me to select the file I want to import from, the pull-down
"files of type" list only lets me choose from Access file types.

It doesn't contain any Excel file types or any other file type at
all. If I type in my excel file manually it says "The ADP file is not
in the correct format for a Microsoft Access Project". Can someone
shed some light on this issue please?

Works for me, I get all kinds of file types. Perhaps you need to run Office
setup to enable this option or try your luck using the Microsoft Knowledge
base.
