    Hi!

    I'm new to Microsoft access, but am familiar with the other microsoft programs. My friend sent me micrsoft access database files to my email account. How can I open them through email? For some reason, it is not working... Whenever I download the file it is unable to open it in the correct program, which is access. Can anyone help? Much thanks

    There is a security feature in Outlook that forbid the reception of attached MS Access files. By default, this security feature is on. To turn it off see: Unblock Access attachment in Outlook.
    Have a nice day!
