I was wondering if anyone has had this problem and if anyone has a solution. I am working with an access database and trying to link an xbase/clipper database to it. The problem is that it is an unrecognized file format with unsupported index files. Does anyone know of a way to bypass this problem so that the dbf database can be updated when the mdb one is? Can this be done via Visual Basic 5.0? Any comments will be a help. Is there a specific xbase/clipper driver that may be needed?
