    Hello! I could use some help with my Acdess data base that I'm trying to
    email through Outlook. I have Access 2003, but the database was created in
    an older version and I have been adding to it for many years. However, when
    I email the database to OutLook users or give them a copy they are not able
    to open it. It gives an error about the wrong format.

    I've converted the database several times to 2000 and 2003 but neither works.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    ..mdb is a file extension that recent versions of Outlook deem to be
    "dangerous." Sometimes you can sneak your file past the built-in guardian
    by renaming it with a .txt extension, the renaming it back to .mdb on the
    receiving machine.

    "doesn't work" doesn't give anyone much to go on.

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!
