Access 97 failing to import Excel Spreadshhets

I use Office 97 and Windows XP. Have previously been able to import an Excel spreadsheet using File>Get External Data>Import. The file type drop down should show Excel, Text and HTML, as well as DBase and FoxPro. This no longer allows for the import of Excel, text or HTML.
Have tried adding via Office Setup, but it says it is installed. Removing Office and doing a custom instal (don't want Outlook), again shows these as installed when in theory nothing should be there - after WinDoctor sweep of the Registry.
Any thoughts on how to resolve?
