    Just started using Access 2007 Beta 2. A created database saves with the
    extension (.accdb) being automatically added and then cannot be seen when
    opened.
    There seems to be no facility to specify saving options using the Save As
    function?
    Existing DBs with the extension (.MDB) open and save OK.
    So is this BETA version constricted????

    Go to:
    - Microsoft Office Button (top left),
    - Access Options (bottom of dialog),
    - Personalize (first tab)
    - Creating Databases
    and set:
    Default file format

    Haven't actually tested, but that should let you create an MDB in 2000 or
    2002/03 format.

    This cured the problem OK but users should be aware that the "save as"
    function does not stipulate WHERE in the same way that the "Save As" option
    does in all the programs that I have ever used, what comes up is very strange
    and renames the file as a copy??? Also one has to designate the place where
    files are to be saved in Access options. OK I suppose when you get used to
    it!!!!

    Thanks Allen -
