    What exactly are you trying to convert? You won't be able to convert the forms, etc., only the data itself, and the best way to do that is to export the Approach data into a format that Access can readily import. Be warned, though, that Approach databases tend to be flat, even though they market the product as relational.

    It's a visual database from Lotus, something like FileMaker Pro.
