    I don't care to purchase this software. I just need to convert if to a different format. If not I will just tell our client to resend it using a .mdb or other format.

    If you think of another way that costs less than $60 and is equally reliable, let us know.

    1) It is spelt Approach
    2) Lotus Approach does not have its own database; it is supposed to work with other, existing databases, like .dbx or 1-2-3 range or similar. Only the meta-descriptions, queries and reporting formats are held in a specific format.
    3) Approach has rather wide range export facilities: delimited or fixed length text files, Oracle, DB2, SQLServer, ODBC, ...
    Hope this helps
