    Example databases (Access 2003)

    I cannot find the example databases that Access has. eg. I believe that it has database examples for General Ledger, Debtors, Purchasing etc.

    Or have these been omitted in Access 2003?

    Patt

    I get offered these templates in my copy of Access 2003.

    They are stored in C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeTemplates1033.
    Regards

    As you can see in in John's screenshot, the sample databases can be found in the Databases tab of the Templates dialog (select File | New..., then click "On my computer" to display this dialog).

    Thanks John, I had forgotten where they were. However I can't seem to open them from that window you have shown me.

    I did what Hans said and selected one of those databases and it pops a dialog box up that asks for a path for the new database. It's name has a 1 after it indicating it is already there.

    Hans was describing the same process I was using.

    These are not sample databases you can just open (like Northwind).

    Instead they are templates for new databases you can create. So if you create a new one based on ledger, it does not want to also call it ledger, so it suggests ledger1.

    Fair comment, I had thought they were sample databases, shows how long it's been since I had a look at them.

    I realise that Hans suggestion was the same as yours, my problem was I thought they were ready made samples rather than templates used to create the databases in the first place.

    Thanks again
