    Unanswered: How to import .db file into Access


    New Database user here. I am trying to access the data in various files created in Paradox between 1990 and 2000. I do not know the version(s) of paradox used, and I do not have paradox software. I would be perfectly happy with just .csv files containing the data from the paradox files. For database software, I have MS Access 2007 and 2010.

    Thanks for any and all help.

    they're making it harder with the recent versions of access, but it used to be this simple:

    file / open
    change the file type to paradox db and pick a table
    put in the installation cd and let access load the paradox drivers

    if that doesn't work with 2007, you can still get cheap older paradox disks on my web site or on ebay.. paradox 7 or later will open any paradox table..
