    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?
