I appreciate your response to my Newbie question but I have already
tried that and it is
requiring a user name and password in order to import the data into an
MS Access 
DB. I have tried all my clients user names and passwords to no avail.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Hi David,
I am not sure if it will work but if you go to the website
is a ODBC driver that you can download for the Omnis datafile.
Using this ODBC driver you would be able to connect other tools like MS
Access to the datafile and you could use this to extract the data.
