    I have an Access 97 database that I couldn't convert to 2003. Now I can, but
    when I open the file it doesn't ask me if I want to convert. When I call up
    the file it says it is in (Access 97 file format). How do I convert this now?

    Open Access 2003 first and then select the file, don't double click on the
    file it probably openning Access 97 with this file and this is why it doesn't
    prompt you with the question if you want to convert your mdb

    I hope that helped
    Good Luck

    Open A2003, without opening any database.

    Go to:
    Tools | Database Utilities | Convert.
