This is a similar problem to others I've seen on several forums, but following the steps described doesn't lead me anywhere in my case.
 
I am running MS Access (Office 2000 version), on a Windows 7 machine.  Recently I got the Error message Error loading DLL, when I attempted to import a text file into a table.  This is something I had previously done hundreds of times without a problem.  Now I get this error no matter what source text I try to import.
 
Thus In MSAccess:
using menu File/Get External Data/Import
then selecting Files of type: Text Files (txt, asc, csv, etc) in the dialogue box following, and selecting e.g. Table.txt and clicking Import causes a box to pop up, headed Import Text Wizard, containing the message Error in Loading DLL.

In trying to work though suggested fixes, my progress seems impeded due to 1) Windows 7 is no longer supported on the MS support site; 2) my use of an older version of Access means that I don't know how I should properly form certain registry keys (based on the examples given for different versions of Windows and Access), and what DLL files need to be referenced in my case.

 

I have also tried re-registering the DLL's mentioned in the how-to-fix on the MS support pages.

I don't know what caused this error suddenly to happen, although I have been trying a few new software installations of various things recently.

If you still have the installer for Access 2000 I would consider uninstalling it and re-installing. This will not affect any of the data bases you may have generated because they are not stored with the program files.

Thanks Chris Cosgrove,

I believe I have tried that, but I'll give it another go, and let you know what happens.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Access 2000 (and I remembered to deactivate my antivirus this time), BUT no change to problem.
