Thanks Jim. I don't need any converted at the moment but my goal for 2022 is
to do some cleanup of many of the things on my computer. Part of that will
be to find, and re-organize, all the mdbs into 4 categories. 1) Those that
are already "365",  2) Those that need to be converted to "365", 3) Those
that I need to keep for historical reason but don't need converting, and 4)
Those that just get dumped. Once I've figured out all the category 2 items,
I will take you up on your offer, or another volunteer if you can no longer
do it when I come up with my list.
