My client sent me two MDB files and a couple of html files. I am trying to run an analysis with those mdbs in order to give him an estimate based on matches and repetitions but apparently the MDBs are password-protected and the results I get come out with no fuzzy or exact matches. And I know there is data in the MDBs.

I called back the client and he said that if I had Dejavu (which I do) I could open the files without any password. Is that true?

I'm new with Deja Vu (Deja Vu X)and would appreciate any help with that.

Not sure this helps, but... Dec 10, 2004

How are you trying to open the files? If you just double click on them from the explorer, then probably MS Access pops up asking for a password. However, if you try to open them from *inside* Deja Vu this should not happen.

I'm afraid I have the old Deja Vu 3.0.18, so I can't give you exact instructions, but there must be a "Database maintenance" menu/module somewhere that allows you to open the database.

MDB is the old (DV3) format Dec 10, 2004

MDB is the file extension for the old (DV3, pre-DVX) TM format. If you're using DVX and have MDB files (as file extension, not as a generic term for translation memory), you need to convert the files to the new format. That Tools->Convert->DV2x/DV3x Memory Database.
