Why doesn't Access97 read Btrieve Files. Access 2.0 does it with no problem. Is there a driver I need and if so where can I get them. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

ACC: Btrieve ISAM Not Available in Microsoft Access 95/97

Last reviewed: April 3, 1997
Article ID: Q141623 The information in this article applies to:

•Microsoft Access versions 7.0, 97
SUMMARY

There is no longer an ISAM available for Btrieve data.

MORE INFORMATION
Microsoft Access version 2.0 applications that have links to Btrieve tables will not work if you convert the applications to Microsoft Access 7.0 or 97. New applications in either version will not have the option of linking, importing, or exporting Btrieve data.

Microsoft Access 7.0 and 97 do not ship with a Btrieve driver. Pervasive Software Inc. has a 32-bit ODBC driver available. For information about obtaining this driver and the 32-bit Btrieve engine, please contact Pervasive Software Inc. at (800) 287-4383.
