I have several databases which were created some time ago using 'works 4'
On my latest computer which has winxp and office, I tried to open these files in Access and got an error message.
Is there any way these databases can be converted to run in Access? Thanks.

Thanks David, I'll have a look at that.

When you refer to works 4 I presume you are referring to Microsoft Works version 4.
I think you will find that Access will not import a MS Works Database directly.
What you would have to do is open your databases in works 4, save them as say a .dbf file, then import your dbf file into Access.

Note I think works 4 is quite an old version which may not run on an XP machine except in compatibility mode.

Thanks to both. Solved by saving into db4 and then importing to access.
