How can I convert a file (database) in DBD format to MDB? Supposedly, the owning application Music Library by Wen Software used Access 2000. If I can get the file into MDB, I can load it into Alpha 5v8 or Access 2007. A prior version of Access was able to do the conversion using Tools/Database Utilities/Convert Database/To Current Database format, but I no longer have that version and I don't see how to get Access 2007 to do it.

If you could do it in previous Access versions then I can't see why you can't do it in A2007.

Maybe the DBD extension is just masking the fact that it is an mdb file really, if it was possible to convert it previously.

Getting Access 2007 to ignore the DBD extension works. You just need to, in the open file dialogue, get it to display All Files. It converts the DBD with no problems.
