    I got this error when trying to import data from MS Access into
    Outlook (both 2003 running on XP). This seems to be an ODBC error but
    I could find no faults and after much messing about I found that the
    fault lay in a corrupted outcmd.dat file. This lurks in
    C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application
    Data\Microsoft\Outlook\ in XP.

    Posting this in the hope it might be indexed so others can find it.

    Do you have the latest ODBC Engine installed ?
