    I have a client that uses this old database. I believe that the company no
    longer supports the database and I want to move the information to Access.

    Can anyone advise me on this?

    Is it possible?

    I fear most of us are not familiar with a database named "This Old
    Database". Perhaps it has a more specific name that someone here might
    recognize, and then actually might be able to offer a suggestion.

    Access has the best connectivity features I have found in any database, so
    there's a good chance you might be able to Link or Import. If not, many
    databases can export to other database format files (dBase's .DBF is a
    common one) which Access may be able to import.

    Hi Larry, apologies. I thought I was being clever by mentioning the name if
    the database in the subject line. I thought it would attract the people who
    might be familiar with the name.

    It's called "contact partner" and it was produced by FDP Corp. The
    extension I see is mdb.

    thanks for the reply!

    A search at Google using the keywords 'contact partner fdb corp' turned up
    the following ...

    http://support.insurance.sungard.com/supportlink.cfm

    It would appear that FDP Corp are now SunGard Insurance Systems, and,
    according to their web site, 'Contact Partner' is still supported.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
