P: n/a
I am now using Win XP, but I had the problem under Win2K and have
users under Win2K importing from dbase III plus successfully using
Access 2000 and XP.

I upgraded to the Jet 4.0 as Microsoft said and had no luck, and I
left the Jet 4.0 patch on the systems to be current.

You have to go into the System registry using Start | Run | RegEdit

Then go to EDIT | Find and search
for:[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Jet\4.0\Engi nes\Xbase]

and change the Deleted value from 1 to 0.

when you are done your values should be similar to below.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Jet\4.0\Engi nes\Xbase]
"win32"="C:\\WINDOWS\\System32\\msxbde40.dll"
"DbcsStr"=hex:01
"Mark"=dword:00000000
"Date"="MDY"
"Exact"=hex:00
"Deleted"=hex:00
"Century"=hex:00
"CollatingSequence"="Ascii"
"DataCodePage"="OEM"
"NetworkAccess"=hex:01
"PageTimeout"=dword:00000258

NOTE: Before you perform any changes in the registry you should back
it up. You can do this by performing the following steps:

1) Make sure your cursor in before the first character on the first
line.

2) Got FILE | Export ( usually name the file using YYYYMMDD for
example 20040122 ).

3) Perform the changes listed above.

Good luck,
