Convert Access 2000 to 2003?

    Hi Folks,

    I just created a new database in Access 2003 and when I went to make an MDE
    file for the users I got the following error message.

    You cannot create a MDE file from a database saved in 2000 format.
    Convert the database to the current version. Then create the ADE or MDE
    file.

    I have no idea why when creating a new database in Access 2003 it uses the
    Access 2000 format, but how do I now convert this database to the Access
    2003 format so I can create the MDE file? I created the backend also in 2000
    format without realizing it and I have it connected to a secure workgroup.
    Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    The Access 2000 format is set as the default when you create a new
    database. To change it:
    Tools + Options + Advanced

    To convert an existing database:
    Tools + Database Utilities + Convert Database

    Then make your MDE.

    Fred,

    Thanks, I totally forgot I could do this in Access from the Tools menu. I've
    changed the default format to now be Access 2002-2003 for all new databases.
    I really appreciate your quick response and help with this. Take care. :)
