a client sent a mdb file for MultiTerm, but I can't open it, as I have MultiTerm v. 5. Can somebody help me in how to convert the file into mtw so I can use it with MultiTerm 5?
This must be a Multiterm iX .mdb file.
The proper way to transfer its content to Multiterm 5 would be to export a .csv file or a tab-separated .txt file from Multiterm iX, and convert (reformat) this into a Multiterm 5 import file, then set up a Multiterm 5 database and import it.
If you do have MS Access (which is not contained in the standard Office distributions) and if the file is not password protected (or if you found out how to find out Access passwords), then there is a tiny chance that you could export its content using Access.
But the whole procedure would take some pages to describe, so I cannot explain it here.
If your client is experienced with Multiterm 5, he should be able to provide you the required .mtw file, but I think you will be lucky if he can send you at least an Excel file for reference.
