A dbase .mbk file is a database index backup file. There is no useful data in it. You need the .dbf file to access the data.

I believe I gave the OP the appropriate information in reply to the question.  If by "It was the answer I researched" they meant that my answer is what they researched then I believe I should get the points.

Had to abandon the pursuit of getting the contents of the .mbk and create a .dbf file.
