    I use a 3d visualisation tool which, obviously enough, houses its textures
    and objects etc in a database.
    Thing is, Office 2007 will not allow me to open and adjust the database
    without changing the db to a 2007 db.
    This will render the db unusable by my program.
    Seem to me that the program is therefore rendered obsolete for me as I
    cannot possibly see the sense in purchasing a release version of this version
    of office if it is going to make my database and its data, unusable.
    I thought the idea was to move forward and increase operability, not reduce
    it.

    That above behaviors is not correct. I have successfully run and used older
    format databases with the beta 2007. It worked just fine.

    You DO NOT need to convert the database to open, and edit. You can leave the
    database in a older format, and a2007 should edit it just fine....

    What version of MDB does your tool currently use? Access 97 or Access
    2000?

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
