I'm getting an error message (ERROR 340) when I try to open a MDB file. The MDB file doesn't have password and I have created the relationships among the tables that it has.

Is it possible to open it, I mean, I can use this version of ERwin with MS access 2000 ? I must create an ODBC connection ?

Thanks in advance for any help

I believe this version of ERWin only supports Access 97 and prior versions.  You can always convert the Access 2000 database to Access 97 before using the Reverse Engineer command to import the structure into ERWin. Do your project in ERWin, export back to the Access 97 database and, after everything is completed, convert the 97 back to 2000.

Otherwise, your best bet is to check the web site for updates and technical support or upgrade to the latest release of ERWin.

Ok, I have already done what You are saying, but the problem is that I always get the same error message. If You don't mind, let me ask You one more thing : Is necessary to make any change in the Set Option Windows (that one that is showed after You check Access in the Target Desktop DBMS) ?

Thanks again.

Not necessary to change options on that screen.  On the next screen, where you Browse to the database, make sure you set the userID to Admin with no password.  No need to specify the System database.

What's the error message description?  I have not had a problem using ERWin with Access 2000 databases as long as I have created a 97 version first.

I just solved the problem. I created an ODBC connection directly to an Access 2000 MDB and UserID = Admin, as You said. So, I'll give the points, thanks.
