    Hi I've been sent a database in Access 97. I cannot open or convert it as I
    get "you don't have appropriate security permission to open or convert
    databases created in earlier versions". I am the sole user of the computer
    that I'm trying to open it on

    It sounds like the database was secured using user level security. You
    are not going to be able to open it without some additional material from
    the one that sent it.

    I suggest you start by reading
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;[LN];207793

    Access security is a great feature, but it is, by nature a complex product
    with a very steep learning curve. Properly used it offers very safe
    versatile protection and control. However a simple mistake can easily lock
    you out of your database, which might require the paid services of a
    professional to help you get back in.

    Practice on some copies to make sure you know what you are doing.
