    Question Unanswered: How do I import data from DBase file to MDB

    Hi Gents,

    One of my client has very old db program created in Dbase (ver might be 5 or 6 dont know). I can see the files with extension DAT, EXE, BAK etc....

    I am planning to import one important file which has master data of items for car spare parts. I am expecting upto 50,000 records might be holded by files.

    I am confused which way to get the data. I never try to import from Dbase file. Is there any particular way to import this file or just to use DoCmd.TransferDatabase....

    Please advise.
    With kind regards,
    Ashfaque

    As a once-off, I'd just try with File - Get External Data - Import.
