with a spreadsheet of that size you probably won't be happy, even if you get it into access. While I'm not an excerpt with sql, it will probably suit your needs much better. If you can't afford it, try looking at mysql.

one alternative to splitting the csv horizontally is to split it vertically.

That is  import it into another database mysql or sqllite and then export the first ten columns, and the the next 20 column with a key field of  course , to get under the limit and then join them back inside access. Just an idea
