Opening a 6.5 nsf file in 8.5
Posted on 2010-11-15
Hi Lotus Notes Expert,
I am wondering if it is possible to copy a *.nsf file that was created in 6.5, copy it onto a different machine and open it up in 8.5.
Come to think of it, I really don't care all that much whether it opens up in 8.5 or not, but I do like to grab the data and dump it into Access or Excel.
So far what I have tried is to copy the *.nsf file created in 6.5, created an ODBC Data Source with a Lotus NotesSQL Driver and pointed it to the nsf file. When I try to connect to it via MS access I get the following error message: "[lotus][odbc_lotus_notes]cannot open specified database".
