Customer Question

You can try the instructions on this page which basically say to save it as a dbase type file and then import the dbase file into access.


You should be able to get the data into a table in access without much problem. Things like forms and reports i think that you will have to recreate.

Can you log on to my computer and walk me through this. Prior to emailing you, I tried this process without success.

Expert:  flopcat98 replied 4 years ago.

I wish that i could but i cant. However i will try to walk through it with you step by step;.


At what point do you have the problem or are unable to follow the directions?

Last time I used Just Answer, I was sure my rep (for an added sum of money) could log into my computer. Is that no longer offered?

It was a test conducted on a very small scale.
