A Btrieve ISAM is no longer available in Microsoft Access 2000.


Microsoft Access version 2.0 applications that have links to Btrieve tables will not work if you convert the application to Microsoft Access 2000. New applications will not have the option of linking, importing, or exporting Btrieve data.

Microsoft Access 2000 does not ship with a Btrieve driver. Pervasive Software Inc. has a 32-bit ODBC driver available. For information about obtaining this driver and the 32-bit Btrieve engine, please contact Pervasive Software Inc.
