    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.

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!
