Unanswered: Linking to Dbase III files.... File not found?!?!
I'm trying to link to Dbase III files; but I keep getting a "file not found" error message. I'm browsing to the file, click on the file, select OK, and BOOM! Error message.
I'm using Access 2003 (all SP's up to date), and the dbase files reside on a local server. The dbase files are generated via ArcInfo (mapping software), and another user is able to link just fine. What is wrong with my PC?!?!
From what I can remeeber 9years ago was Dbase III has 2 file to make one database The header file and the DATA file.
why not try a ODBC connection create a ODBC connection to the Dbase III then open MSACCESS and point to the ODBC connection.
hope this help
See clear as mud
the aim is store once, not store multiple times

Actually, I figured out that my filenames were too long. Once I shortened them up to dos configurations, it worked seamlessly!! I still don't know why the other PC was working with the longer format, and mine wouldn't (I even upgraded to Access 2007)... But who cares, it's working now! :-)
