ISAM Error

By lynn.johnson@jcbradford. ·
Remote user getting "An error occured while importing the Beach data:3170 Couldn't find installable ISAM." Is this a registry setting, or will a reinstall of Access correct the error? Remote user on MS Office 95. Thanks! Lynn

ISAM Error

This probably isn't any help, but my experience with ISAM is that it is a file type, an indexed sequential file, and I didn't think it was the of same type as Access.

Have a look at Microsoft Knowledge Base article Q107672. Hope it helps.

ISAM Error

by fofa In reply to ISAM Error

usually this means the file conversion function for the file type was not installed. usually occurs when you use a TYPICAL install with Access then try to import a file type not supported. This could mean for example, you are trying to link/import Dbase tables and the Dbase converter is not installed. We have seen this with a bad install/corrupted install also and removing and reinstalling helps in that case. But the most normal cause is the first I outlined.
