Hi, I want to take part in this PPC challenge in January and would like to use my G3 Lombard at work, which has tiger 10.4.11 installed but to do so I need to find a way of using the access database i use at work to a program i can use on the mac. Now i have already tried a number of things but each one has failed. The access database i use at work is built from MS Access 2007. Database exporting options are very limited. At the moment i've exported the data to a txt file, having it use commas as it's separator. I've never used database programs on the mac before so i'm basically working from scratch. 10.4.11 supports mac ms office 2004 but it does not come with access. I have tried openoffice.org and libreoffice, used their database import feature, openoffice hangs everytime and libreoffice once importing just displays it as a word document. I've read that Filemaker pro (version for tiger) will not import access databases and the only way i can use access database on a mac is to use specialist programs that i would have to pay for. I am a bit lost at the moment and therefore am asking the community for help mainly because I've never used databases on the mac and therefore never had to deal with this problem. Also, more brains on the issue is better than one . Is my only option to pay for one of these specialist programs? a bit drastic just to take part in a fun competition i think.
