trouble with .dbf file
Posted on 2004-04-30
I'm trying to open a dbf file through ASP and it gives me this error:
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers (0x80004005)
[Microsoft][ODBC dBase Driver] External table is not in the expected format.
If I right click the file in Explorer, then choose Open With, then MS Access, it gives me this error:
Unrecognized Database Format 'D:\myfile.dbf'.
If I go into Access, then click File->Open and select the file, it seems to open it, but then says "External table is not in the expected format".
However, I can open the file in MS Excel and view it perfectly.
So, what's up with this file?
I have Windows 2000 Server and MS Office 2000. Thanks in advance.
