    I am running Windows XP Professional. I am running MS Works Version 7 and
    MS Access 2003. I need to open or convert and use fully a Works Database
    file .wdb in MS Access. Any ideas? Thanks very much.

    I believe you must export the file from Works to a format that Access
    can read.

    Thanks. Please tell me what that would be. I have tried .dbf IV and it
    doesn't carry the table with it.

    I would have expected the dBase format to work. What do you mean by "doesn't
    carry the table with it"?

    You could try exporting to comma-delimited (.csv): at least that way you can
    look at what's in the file.

    Chris,

    I was actually asked to do something like this yesterday, and discovered the
    following link:
    How to Import a Works for Windows Database to MS Access
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/93429/en-us

    I ended up not using the information due to the fact that there turned out
    to be such a small amount of data in the Works DB, it only took a few minutes
    to enter it manually. But maybe you will find the info somewhat useful.
