Hi Val and All on the list :)

Val, If you want to open it and read it - you can try using a program called OpenOffice - it's backwards compatible with pretty much everything MS made as far as stuff for Windows 95 :)

Failing that, if you just want it converting to something else, so everyone can view it, please forward it onto me, and I will happily convert it to a different format.

Warmest Regards from a very chilly England,

Thor

    Val,

    I don't have MS Access 2007 but I may be able to do something with
    it.

      Hello SignWriting List!
      Maria Galea from Malta has an exciting database of
        classifiers in Maltese Sign Language, written in SignWriting,
        which she wants to share with all of us.
      

      
      But the database is in old software…Microsoft Access 2007. I
        cannot open the file. Is there anyone here on the List who has
        access to Microsoft Access 2007, and could possibly create a PDF
        or other kind of file from it? Or help me learn how to open it
        with other software? I am on a Mac, but I do also have a Windows
        7 computer here...
      

      
      Val ;-)
