Lotus Approach to Access conversion

  1. Can anyone help me.
    I've been using Lotus Approach for over 10 years now (for a large and very complex stock control database) and can make it do just about anything but it's getting a bit long in the tooth now so I am in the process of converting to Access (2003).
    All the data I need has been imported but I'm stuck on a couple of issues.
    1.I need something like the "Fill Field" function that was available in approach.
    2.How can I get a macro to run more than 20 times in Access.
    I'm sure there will be more issues but these 2 points will get me heading in the right direction.
    Thanks in anticipation
    Phil

    try openoffice. I think it can read and save in both formats.
