Forum OpenACS Q&A: Q&A conversion to ACCESS???

Posted by Alan Doucet on
Does anyone know where I can get a Q&A database converted to ACCESS?
Posted by Roberto Mello on
Nowhere. Access doesn't support the features that are needed by OpenACS.

Alan, are you talking about the old DOS program, Q&A? If so, you probably will have the best conversion by exporting your data into DBaseIII or IV format, then importing into Access.

However, your question isn't really on-topic here, since it has nothing to do with OpenACS, which runs primarily on Unix rather than DOS.

Maybe he is talking about moving data from an OpenACS Q&A package instance to an Access DB?

Is that what you are asking Alan?

Since Alan apparently works for Adder Consulting, "your one-stop provider for all technology needs", I guess he must know what he's trying to ask us, and will shortly clarify his question.
