Access 97 database (front and back end).  When I try to open and convert using Access 2003, certain tables don't get converted properly.  Bothe their field names and types get changed (eg.
from text to autonumber, or text to number).  And the data in these tables changes from text descriptions to just a bunch of numbers or blanks.  Otherwise most other aspects of the database seems to work ok.  Any suggestions how I can remedy this?
