Hi,I have bought a Genealogical cd with a database of over 600,000 names on it ,It was created with MS Access.I Have been told i would be able to use OpenOffice to view the data but i am only able to import 32000 names on to 1 sheet.There is supposed to be 250 sheets in total but i've only got 3 and the import stops on the first sheet.does anyone know how i can view all 600,000 names or suggest software that will handle a large database (but not Access).I have posted on the OPenOffice forum board but there has been no reply.
Hi woodchip tha's what i've just been doing after i got the message from Pesala but i still get this error message when i try to import the database "The maximum number of rows has been exceeded.Excess rows were not imported!" I'm trying to insert the data at the moment to see if that will work.I'll let you know how i get on.
Hi Woodchip,i did first open it in my word processer but it didn't keep the columns. Above the spreadsheet there is a data view so i can see all the data but can only copy 1 cell at a time.I will try to open it from the cd and see how that goes.
