    Default Converting Alpha 5 v1 to Access 97

    How does one convert an Alpha Five version 1 database to Access 97 format? I have already tried to import it into Access 97, but haven't been able to get the reports, queries, code, etc. imported into Access 97 as well. How would one go about getting these imported?
    I have Alpha 5 version 3 also, would it be easier to convert from this version to access 97 format?

    You can only export/import data between most software applications, including Alpha Five and Access. I believe even Excel and Access only swap data.

    So once the data is in Access you need to create all the reports, code, forms etc from scratch.
