      At 66MB that's some index. So we don't all spin our wheels, do you know what Access version created the file and what versions have you tried?

      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.

        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
