i Access for Windows v7r1, at latest service level SI56695

I transfer data into Excel and occasionally will attempt to transfer a
record that causes a data conversion error (CWBTF0105). Thus far, it's
been caused by a byte in a character field that has a value of x'00',
x'11', or some other value less than x'20'. This is data from an external
source, so I have no control over it.

Ideally, it would be nice to have the transfer finish completely and add a
2nd worksheet in the spreadsheet that lists all of the errors it
encountered. Since I've seen no indication of such an option, I'm
wondering if there's a conversion setting that defaults a certain character
when a non-convertable character is encountered.

Ideas appreciated.
