hi there

if the mde file has been compiled in access 97 then try to use it in access2000 it will try ask for conversion.
the mde file is actually a compilation of the vbcode and database in one package. if u have the database backup u can convert that into msaccess2000 or 2003

revert back with what error ur getting when ur trying to open or convert the mde file
