Cannot link .DBF files to Access


J

Jackson

I'm having a problem with some .DBF tables and Access 2002. When I try to
link them as external data, Access reports "External table is not in
expected format", help says the table has changed since it was last changed,
but it is being linked for the first time????

I can open these tables in Excel and Lotus Approach and the name complies to
8:3 format. I believe the application which created these tables was
possibly a Foxpro one.

Please help before I give up and use something else to link these tables.

Hi Jackson,

Open the Administrative Tools applet in the Control Panel. You should see "Data Sources
(ODBC)" listed in the Name column.
