    What is the file extension? If it is a .mdb then probably so.

    JS
    Have you ever thought about thinking on purpose?

    Yea an access database extension is a .mdb (or a compiled version is a .mde but I dont think you want to convert to a compiled version).

    I hope you are able to find something.
