But I'm browsing to my desktop and it doesn't show up.…That's because it's going to be looking for the old school pre-Access 2007…Access files, .mdb files which are not going to show up.…If I try and bypass that by just selecting all files and then I will select this…classic Northwind Access database.…It's in the .accdb format. I could try that.…I'll click Next and it's not going to work at all.…That's because this original data source is old school Microsoft Access.…
It's not going to work.…
