    I am running MS XP Professional. I am running MS Access 2003 and MS Works
    Suite Version 7.0. How do I convert or open an Access .MDB file to Works
    Database .WDB file?

    Thanks Chris.

    I don't know what Works can read. I suspect you may need to export the
    data from Access to a format Works can read. You will not be able to use
    the same structure, forms reports etc from Access. Works just does not have
    the ability to reproduce them. It is not intended for the same kind of more
    complex work Access is designed for.

    In addition to .WDB files, Works database will also open .dbf (dBase)
    files and text files. So from Access save your data as a dBase (.dbf)
    file, and you can then import it into Works.

    But I'm wondering.... why would you want to do that if you have
    Access?

    Just use the file->Export option.

    Simply export the data to a text (csv) file. Works can read that.

    You can also choose Excel, as I *think* works can import excel (check this
    in Works).

    So, you have a few choices in terms of moving the data to works....
