The best you can do is to open up your Works database, click on a table and save it as a dBase file (dBase IV would be my suggestion). Access will import it with no problems. However, you will not have any luck importing reports or forms - somewhere in the process, all that is seen it the data in the background, so a form or report ends up being imported as a table. I didn't try this with queries, (don't know Works well enough to try) but I suspect that you would find similar problems. (FYI, I created the winelist database that Works offers as a template and the only thing that was imported was the one table, but multiple times).
