If you are using a 64-bit edition of Microsoft Office and you get the following message when attempting an import, this means there are some prerequisites missing on the desktop:

(Unable to access the specified source file''. Select another one to continue. Invalid Operation Exception: The 'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' provider is not registered on the local machine.)

Please make sure the following components are installed on your desktop and in this order:
