    It is possible if you can find out the file format what MS Access is using, the only problem here that MS like to keep their file formats private, and they notoriously make big changes from one version to another, sometimes with compatibility issues. A good alternative would be to look up a different database file format what Access can import.

    Thanks for your information Atex. But actually I'm going to write a program with visual basic 6 and SQL Server 2000. I have old system devleoped with pascal programming language. I'm not going to use pascal codes anymore but I want to get the data in that software because it is over 10 years data and I have to take the data and put it in the SQL Database. But I don't think SQL Server can import pascal data files into SQL Server directly. And one of my friend told me that I can convert pascal database into microsoft access 2000 or 2003 easily. And then I can import Access database into SQL Server easily. The problem is I know how to import Access Tables into SQL Server but i don't know how to convert pascal data files into access tables. That is my problem. So, could you tell me how to convert pascal data files into access 2000 step by step.

    Do you happen to know the format/structure of you Pascal data files ?

    I know Excel, Word, etc let you import CSV (comma seperated value) files. Check with Access, it may as well.
