    Northwind.mdb (Access 2000)

    For some unknown reason I no longer have the Northwind.mdb on my system and I would like to do some work with it. Where can I find the Northwind.mdb to download to my system. I thought it might be on my Office 2000 CD, but apparently it isn't there.
    Thanks

    Re: Northwind.mdb (Access 2000)

    Francois:
    Thank you for the information on Northwind. mdb. I did find it on Disk 1 of Microsoft Office 2000. Now, however I find the database is READ ONLY. Is there any way to remove the READ ONLY restriction? i am trying to do some exercises with the database and I need to be able to change some of the records temporarily to complete the exercise. Thanks again for any help you can offer.

    Close the database.
    Open Windows Explorer.
    Navigate to the directory where you copy NWIND.MDB o, your Harddisk.
    Right click on NWIND.MDB.
    Choose Properties.
    In the General Tab , uncheck Read Only
