An Excel VBA macro is being used to import text files into Access. Someone else in work wrote this before I arrived here.

We used to get the same files from the US and they import OK. Now we are getting the files from the Netherlands and 0.7458 is coming through as 7458. Are there regional settings happening here or is there some other settings we are missing?

Sometimes you smile back. Sometimes you don’t. And that’s okay, cause … Read More
