    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.
