How do I import MS Access 2010 tables into LO? I can do an ODBC link, but cannot save the tables. Cannot even highlight them then copy and paste.

Export the table as EXCEL or DBF file. then import the (copy paste) EXCEL/DBF into base if you have same field names. Watch Video's at He has base video's that shows how to import EXCEL files into base.

EASY WAY IMPORT EXCEL/DBF IS 1. Create BASE (ODB) Stay at the TABLE area 2. Open EXCEL/DBF file 3. Do a Side by Side (left BASE / right EXCEL) view 4. DRAG just the EXCEL-TAB into BASE TABLE area 5. Import WIZ will start; Make sure choose right Field types and Header make sure go thru all the screens, I wouldn't press FINISH at once. 6. Also don't forget to Assign Primary Key (Record_ID) etc.

Hope this helps....

Good Luck.
