Hi,
I have fixed my problem. I realised that the Microsoft Access Database DSN did not include the *.accdb driver. I deleted the existing DSN and created a new one. This allowed me to select the ODBC driver that worked for both file types.

I cameto realise that I was only having this problem on machines that have been upgraded to excel 2007 and not on machines with full virgin installations. On install both try to create the appropriate DSN but one with the same name already exists on the machines being upgraded and the creation fails.

I hope this helps others.

I need to perform access database repair


The repair method attempts to recover only the tables, indexes and queries in the database. Do not attempt to repair damaged forms, reports, macros and modules. Before executing the Compact and Repair tool, please ensure the following condition:

1. Do not Open Access database must closed
2. Sufficient storage space available - minimum double in size of your Access database on that Disk.
3. Close the .mdb file related to .ldb file before you delete the .ldb file.
4. Then Run the Compact and Repair tool

Properties in importing excel table to an access table


This article explains how to import a Microsoft Excel file into Microsoft Access version 2.0 or 7.0. Microsoft Access can import files from Microsoft Excel version 2.0 through version 7.0. However, Microsoft Access cannot import Microsoft Excel 4.0 workbooks (.xlw). This article assumes that the Microsoft Excel file is using standard database formatting. That is:

To import a Microsoft Excel file in Microsoft Access 2.0 loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation');
  1. Save the file in Microsoft Excel using standard database formatting listed above. Close the file.
  2. Start Microsoft Access 2.0 and open the database you want to import the Microsoft Excel information into.
  3. On the File menu, click Import. From the Import dialog box, choose the appropriate version of Microsoft Excel that you are importing and click the OK button. Microsoft Excel 7.0 files are not on this list. If you are importing a version 7.0 file, choose the Microsoft Excel 5.0 option.
At this point options such as whether to append to an existing table or create a new table may be selected.
To import a Microsoft Excel file in Microsoft Access 7.0 loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation');
  1. Save the file in Microsoft Excel using standard database formatting listed above. Close the file.
  2. Start Microsoft Access 7.0 and open the database you want to import the Microsoft Excel information into.
  3. On the File menu, click Get External Data and then click Import.
  4. From the import dialog box, choose Microsoft Excel (*.xls) for the Files Of Type option.

    This will display only the Microsoft Excel files.
  5. Find the desired file and click the Import button.
The Import Spreadsheet Wizard appears and allows you to choose options specific to the file.

or you just use the link for any problem where you can get details of the importing

Call/Link a Report from another access 2007


Access can only work with one database at a time.
You'll need to either export the data you need and import it into your current database or save it in an external format like Excel or CSV file that you can access.

Try using Data > From Other Sources and select From Microsoft Query. In the Excel sheet, select the cell that you want the results to start in. Your MS Query would be pulling the data from your Access database.
