how to open an mdb file

how to open an mdb file


I received a mdb file which I need to open for the tables must be converted into visual foxpro.
I can't open the mdb. It says that I do not have the rights and the administrator should me grant those.
I did this many years ago but can't recall. Those days I thought I did using office97.

I slightly remeber to create a seperate file which permissions. Sorry, don't know much of Access.

Anyone who knows what to do?

Thanks !


RE: how to open an mdb file

I believe you will to create a workgroup (mdw) file. How you do it depends on what version of Access you are using.
