    I am currently using Access 97. Have been sent a database created in a later
    version of Access (not sure which one) and when this is opened in our Access
    it says "unrecognised database format". Is there a way we can fix this
    problem ourselves or do we have to ask the people who sent us the database to
    change the format somehow?

    The latter. Newer Access can convert to older, but not the other way around.

    Also, when they convert the file to Acces 97 format it will only change the
    format. If there are features being used that are not supported in Access 97
    they will not work after the conversion.
