    The import wizard has no problem with the quotes. Show the code you are using for the import. Is that the exact structure of the text file? Or does that example show the data transposed?
    How to attach file: To provide db: copy, remove confidential data, run compact & repair, zip w/Windows Compression.

    You can also prior to attempting an import, run a search and replace function on the text file (you can do this from access or just by opening a text editor assuming there are no other instances where you want to retain the "" marks)

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
