I pull a report from an Oracle database(?) and export it to Excel. when opening this report (ListExp) I have to go through the dilimiting process and then save it in as an Excel file.
My next step is to import this report into Access to run a duplicates query

Is there an easy way to import the report into Access directly, or import it into Excel without having to go through the delimiting process?

Prevent GETPIVOTDATA. Select inside a PivotTable. In the Analyze tab of the ribbon, open the dropown next to Options and turn it off

Suggest you check your Access help files for importing. If you're going to import into Excel, you'll have to dance the dance.
