    If you can open the database successfully with Access 2003, then try
    converting it back to an A97 format file:
    Tools | Database Utilities | Convert.

    If that succeeds, it should make a new mdb file containing everything, and
    you should be able to open that file with A97.

    Your options:

    If the database is to be used by both versions simultaneously on a network,
    split the database, as described here:
    http://allenbrowne.com/ser-01.html
    You can give each user the version of the front end appropriate to them.

    If the database is to be used alternately between the 2 versions, you can
    open it (not convert) in A2003. You can enter/delete/modify the data only
    using A2003. All maintenance of the database (altering forms, ...) must be
    done in A97.

    If you cannot use the built-in splitter, it is very easy to:
    1. Create a new (blank) database.

    2. Import just the tables. This is the new back end.

    3. Create another new database.

    4. Attach the tables from the new back end.

    5. Import all the other objects (queries, forms, reports, ...) from the old
    database. This is the new front end.
