      Great - thanks for asking! I love it! One indication of the difference between the East coast
      lifestyle and the Midwest lifestyle is the fact that I got two speeding tickets within the first
      month! Out here you just have to slow down and enjoy the corn fields!

          Subject: [midatlanticretro] not quite vintage...anyone have early 90's MS Access?

          Hi
          I need a file converted from a very old version of MS Access into a CSV
          text file. If anyone is up for a challenge, here is the file:

          http://www.vintagecomputer.net/tem/DOMAIN.MDB

          It's a directory of early web sites from 1994-1995. Pls. contact me off
          list if you have success.

          Thanks.

          Bill

            Thanks for checking. I just now booted up a ThinkPad with Windows 3.11,
            unfortunately it have Office w/o MS Access. I am looking for the version
            of Access that came before Access 97. I am looking on my end, and if I
            find a copy I will let everyone know.

            The DB came with a software program, I forget the name offhand, that in
            effect was a "locked" MS Access file from 1995-96. New versions of Access
            can't open it.

            ... Bill, Do you happen to have the .MDA file that goes along with this file? It may help in recovering the database. Cheers, Bryan
