convert .gdb to access/word/excel

I just tried to use the data pump to convert a .gdb file to a Microsoft
Access file. I created an alias to the directory where the file was stored
using the Database Desktop and selected MS Access Database as the target
when using the datapump. I got the error:

Key violation
[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]General error Not enough
information to connect to this DSN
with SQLConnect. Use
General SQL error.
Alias: MS Access Database

after I was prompted for a username and password. I'm not sure why I need a
username and password but tried
username: SYSDBA
pasword:   masterkey

which then gave me this error

RE: convert .gdb to access/word/excel

Hi Trevor,

You might try and use the datapump in the application that I wrote - download yourself a trial copy of InterBase Workbench - www.upscene.com - select the DataPump and see if that helps.
