Database is in an unrecognized format
Posted on 2003-11-05
I have a development system that has Access 97, Access 2000 and Access 2002 installed on it. As long as I open the Access programs and then open the corresponding databases from within the Access programs, it works fine. For one of the Access 2002 databases, I have an icon on the desktop that I double click on to open that Access application. This works OK until I open either the Access 97 or Access 2000, close it and then try to double click on the Access 2002 database icon again. It then gives me "the database is in an unrecognized format" error. Obviously, the Access 2002 database application is trying to open the last Access program that was executed (Access 97 or Access 2000). Access 2002 is installed in a different folder from the Access 97 and Access 2000. Is there a way to make the right Access program load when the icon is double clicked?
