    Re: File name extension (Access 2000)

    You should recommend everyone else to show extensions. Hiding extensions for known file types is dangerous - several of the e-mail viruses that have caused a lot of damage relied on the fact that many users hide the extensions.

    The setting itself has nothing to do with Access. It is a Windows setting:
    - Open Windows Explorer or My Computer.
    - Select Tools | Folder Options...
    - Activate the View tab.
    - To hide file extensions, tick the check box "Hide extensions for known file types"
    - Click OK.
