My colleagues have an ACESS database I would like to maintain on my PowerMac 8600/250.  Since MS doesn't make ACCESS for the Mac, what are my other options?

Thanks in advance...

See if your friends can save the database in another format (like FileMaker Pro or FoxBase) and then use one of those programs.

If this is not an option, try telling them to export the database as raw data, then import the raw data into the database program of your choice. A little bit harder all around, but still doable.

If neither of these choices are available . . . yell at Microsoft! They deserve it for not supporting us Mac users!
