Seeing a Access database file extention in Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to change a clients access database from .accdr back to .accdb so I can make modifications to the database. I have windows 7 but I can't see the file extention to change it.

    Ultimately, I need to gain access to the tables in the database as I plan to redesign my database.

    Any suggestions?

    Activate the View tab.

    Clear the check box "Hide extensions for known file types".
