    I have a question about attaching a file to an email. The file ends in .BDM, but when I attach it it always adds ".MDB" to it. It is a data file. The file name only comes up with the MDB when I try to attach it to an email. I don't know much about this stuff, but I need to get this data to this guy and it kicks out anything with the MDB. Is this a security issue with this type of file? My own computer will not except MDB either. Sorry for my ignorance. I have received BDM extensions before though.

    Thanks,
    Kristi

    Try compressing the file with winzip. then the file extension will be .zip which any email system should recognise.

    The guy ur emailing it to will need winzip to 'unzip' it.

    I do have some zippered folders, but I am not sure how you change them over. I tried to open a zip file without any luck the other day that was emailed to me. How do you change this "MDB" to a "zip"?

    Thanks,
    Kristi

    You have to use a program called winzip to do it.

    You can download it at www.winzip.com
