Hi everybody,

I am just trying to load an external termbase but when I browse the the respective folder the folder is shown as empty. But the termbase is there and has the right format (mdb).

Does anybody know this problem and the possible reason?

Thank you very much in advance.

Kind regards,

Try this... Jun 15, 2009

Hi Rainer,

When browsing for the file, please make sure that you have selected the correct file format (.mdb) under the Files of Type option. Also, try typing "*.*" (without quotes) in the Filename box and pressing enter. This will display all files in that folder.

I hope this helps.

Many Thanks,

Gareth Powell

Thanks very much.

Obviously the systems wants to make the task more challenging.

I already tried this but it did not work.

But I detected the file was in an archive folder.

No I find the file when trying to load the external termbase but receive an error message about an invalid path.

More tomorrow.

Have a nice evening!

Kind regards,
