Hi!

I need to import a text file based on it's name.  The name is could be some=
thing like RACB_201803214005 or RACB_201803214515.  The first part is alway=
s RACB_YYYYMMDD, but the last 4 characters represent the milliseconds when =
the file was created and they could be anything.  How do I get Access to fi=
nd the correct file for import with the last 4 characters listed a wildcard=
s?  I have tried an asterisk and that didn't work.

Please help.

Thanks,
Laura
