Either you need to upgrade your version of Excel or the person creating the spreadsheet needs to save it in a format for compatability. For example, the person who created the workbook simply needs to do File and Save As. Under type, one can choose a format for older versions of Excel.

Hope this helps!

PREVENTING REPEAT ENTRIES IN A RECORD ENTER BOX OR REPEAT ENTRY OF EARLIER ENTRY


The only reference I find is that you may have a duplicate filter. Check the filters and delete the duplicate on.
Also, to create a reliable database, I would use Excel or OOpenOffice, which has a spreadsheet program compatible to Excel.

Download and install the free, open source OpenOffice.org office suite (www.openoffice.org)-- it include a spreadsheet compatible with Excel spreadsheets (along with a good, MS Word compatible word processor, and a good MS PowerPoint-compatible presentation program).

Good Luck,
Joe
