    I have installed Access converter but still when i open my XP mdb it prompts
    me to either convert it into access 2003 or open as read only.should not this
    could automatically convert older mdb file to new access 2003 file without
    prompting to user

    Simply installing the converter doesn't do anything: you need to run it
    against the MDB files to be converted.

    Be aware, though, that conversion isn't always a slam-dunk: sometimes things
    will not convert without manual intervention. I don't think it's reasonable
    to expect that you can simply convert the applications and hand them to the
    users without doing some testing first.

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!
