I must have left something out cause although I thought that is what I had in there it didn't work. I copied your post and it appears to work. Do you have a very simple, generic piece a code that selects everything from the database and prints it to the screen? I'm uncertain of the format and what data is in this database so I need to loop through and print some of the content to screen. One great approach would be to see the structure of the database. I haven't worked on Access/SQL in such a long time so I apologize for some of these noob-like questions. Thanks so much for the help.

    Have you tried opening the file in Access? I find Access a much more convenient application. Alternatively see Querylet.

    Maybe you are looking for a generic SQL statement to list things?

    select * from $tablename

    will give you the contents of a table.
