    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.
