More information

After Microsoft Access version 2.0, applications that have links to Btrieve tables do not work if you convert the application to Access 2002 or Microsoft Office Access 2003. New applications do not have the option of linking, importing, or exporting Btrieve data.

Access 2002 and Office Access 2003 do not ship with a Btrieve driver. Pervasive Software, Inc. has a 32-bit ODBC driver that is available. For information about obtaining this driver and the 32-bit Btrieve engine, contact Pervasive Software Inc.
