Microsoft Office and Microsoft Works are not interchangeable. You need to save the Works Database as a dbase III or better still a bdase IV file which Microsoft Access can read.

Sorry, I meant dbase IV. I used to be dyslexic but I'm KO now.

Which is exactly what my link walks through doing.

Thank you for your advise but even saving the file as DbaseIV it is not opening in Office 2000.The file name is created but without any Data Any other way ? Regards

Sorry, not that I know of. Try the solution that bremner has offered. I have just tried it myself and it seems to work. Remember your dbase file name must not be more than 8 characters or it won't work. Dbase files are in the 8.3 format.
