Well, this is what I've come up with.....

 

DescKeyImport_Trimble.png

 

It shows all of the Layers, Blocks, and PointStyles defined in the Trimble FXL. You can add a prefixe to any of these, as shown. Selecting OK the creates a new DescriptionKeySet using the name provided in this form.

 

This is the result:

 

DescKeyImport_Trimble result.png

 

The Scale settings do not get imported, as I couldn't determine what they were supposed to be doing, so I just assigned all of the PointStyles to "Use drawing scale".

 

I you are interested in obtaining this, please shoot me a PM.

I don't have TGO in front of me so I can't run any tests but you can import a CSV into ACCESS. Is there some reason why you can't make that  work?

Based on the first post, he can't save to Access97. Based on the CSV file he posted, it doesn't output the required information.

That's correct. It took me about 5 days to program. It will try to create all symbols and styles to match what is specified in the fxl file. You are more than welcome to test it out, as there is a 28 day free trial availble which includes full functionality of all commands.
