    I tried to open an Access 2000 database in Access 2007. An error occured and
    now I get a message that the database has been disabled. The error message
    says to go to Help, About and from there I should be able to enable the item.
    The problem is that I can't find Help, About. Where the heck is it?

    In Access 2007, it is:
    Microsoft Office button | Access Options | Resources | About

    It might be easier to get the database operational again in Access 2000.

    Or it might just be a matter of enabling the code in A2007:
    Microsoft Office button | Access Options | Trust Center | Trust Center
    Settings
    The go to:
    Macro Settings | Enable all macros
    or:
    Trusted Locations specify your your folders.
