    I converted an access 97 DB to 2003. Everything's great except that the
    command buttons remained the old 97 style. How do I get these command
    buttons, I've got hundreds of them, converted? Thanks

    Try creating a new (blank) database in A2003.
    Then import everything from the old database:
    File | Get Exteranal | Import

    IIRC, Access recreates the controls in the new style when you do this.

    You might also want to check that you have "Use Themed Controls" checked
    under:
    Tools | Options | Forms/Reports

    Thanks Allen, "Use Themed Controls" was not checked. Thank You very much for
    that. I would have been clicking for days.
