Hi - I'm getting an error when I try to convert an Access 2003 version database to an MDE file (see error pasted below). It's not a very big application - only about 20 forms, 9 code modules, 15 query objects, and 10 linked tables. What can I do to be able to save this to an MDE? Thanks a lot for any help! Dan --------------------------------------- "This error is usually associated with compiling a large database into an MDE file. Due to the method used to compile the database, a considerable number of TableID references are created for each table. The Microsoft Jet database engine version 4.0 can only create a maximum of 2048 open TableIDs at one time. Exporting a database as an MDE potentially can exceed this limit if the database has a large number of objects (table, macro, form, report, etc). There is no accurate method to estimate the number of TableIDs the Jet database engine uses during the process of compiling a database as an MDE. However, each VBA module and each form uses one TableID, as a result, if the database has 500 forms, and each form's HasModule property is set to Yes, as many as 1,000 TableIDs are used."
