in fact, it does. I have used it more than once. from the features page: http://www.libreoffice.org/features/ *Base* <http://www.libreoffice.org/features/base/> is the database front-end of the LibreOffice suite. With Base, you can seamlessly integrate your existing database structures into the other components of LibreOffice, or create an interface to use and administer your data as a stand-alone application. You can use imported and linked tables and queries from MySQL, PostgreSQL or Microsoft Access and many other data sources, or design your own with Base, to build powerful front-ends with sophisticated forms, reports and views. Support is built-in or easily addable for a very wide range of database products, notably the standardly-provided HSQL, MySQL, Adabas D, Microsoft Access and PostgreSQL. http://www.libreoffice.org/features/ 2011/12/12 Gerard Meijssen <[log in to unmask]> > Hoi, > Open Office does not support Access.. > Thanks, > Gerard > > > On 12 December 2011 18:52, Thor Malmjursson <[log in to unmask]>wrote: > >> 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 >> >> ------------------------------ >> Date: Mon, 12 Dec 2011 12:06:55 -0500 >> From: [log in to unmask] >> Subject: Re: can anyone open Microsoft Access 2007 files? >> To: [log in to unmask] >> >> >> Val, >> I don't have MS Access 2007 but I may be able to do something with it. >> Bill >> >> >> On 12/12/2011 11:44 AM, Valerie Sutton wrote: >> >> SignWriting List >> December 12, 2011 >> >> 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.
