Latest tidbit from tech support. - Jack
This information may be helpful to you:
We have discovered that the reason we are not reading in all the
variables is because the Microsoft import facility
(OLE DB ) we are using with 8.1, is not returning the
proper number of columns. This is an Excel bug.
In V8.0 of SAS/ACCESS to PC File Formats we used the Microsoft DAO
facility which is why this program worked fine in V8.
We switched from DAO in V8 to OLE/DB in V8.1 because of major problems
with DAO (namely, it was not thread safe).
