Hi,

I have a DB2 database file named data1.001 that is from a customer of ours. I need this imported into access but I only see dBaseIII, IV and 5 in the list.

I have looked around and think I need a Microsoft ODBC Driver for DB2 (Msdb2ole.dll?)

Where can I get this? Preferable for free and without and licencing problems.

Yeah, that will probobly be helpfulll if I ever find a actual driver/app.

Another thing... Is DB2 the same as dBaseII? I had assumed it was an earlier version of dBaseIII, IV and 5, but it looks to be a completely seperate databse.

DB2 is IBM's database, Dbase is a very old database,if I remember rightly a filebased one, DB2 is a relational database

Dbase and DB2 are not related
