And Spreadsheet Files

Since the earliest days of Access (when dBASE and Paradox were major forces in the database world, and Lotus 1-2-3 was the leading spreadsheet application) Access could import from or export to these formats. Some people are still using these programs, or at least have old files created by them in past years, so you still might need to import data from a dBASE, Paradox, or Lotus file or (though it's much less likely) export to one of those formats. Access still supports importing from these legacy formats, and you can also export to them, both in the interface and in VBA code.
