These databases were part of Microsoft Access 97 installation. They were released again with Microsoft Access 2000 but without the sample values. Then, they were not released anymore. They are good databases for learning various things in database development (of course you can open them with Microsoft Office Access 2007 and convert them (you should Enable the security on each file)).
