Error when converting database from 2002 to 2000

When I try converting my database to access 2000, it gets almost to the point of completion, when it pops up an error saying.

The Report name 'PropDataCopy' you entered is either the property sheet or macro is mispelled or refers to a report that doesn't exist. If an Invalid report name is in a macro, an action failed dialog box will display the macro name and the macros arguments after you click OK. Open the macro window, and enter the correct report name.

FYI, I have never heard of 'PropDataCopy'

    If you do not feel inclined to hunt for 'PropDataCopy' -- you can be sure it's there somewhere -- you can convert this way:

    Create a new blank Access 2000 database, choose "File / Get external data / Import", select your older database, select everything in every tab, include menus, toolbars and import specifications if you wish and go!

    You will see the objects appearing one  at a time, until the error occurs. At least you now know a little more. You can then import the rest, just skipping over that one. If the faulty object is essential, you will either have to hunt for 'PropDataCopy' nontheless (but only in one object), or recreate it in Access 2000.

    Hope this helps!
