I have converted MS Access 97 to MS access 2002.

When I open XYZ database it is definitely opening in Microsoft Access 2002.
However Icon is similar to MS Access 97 and colour of an icon is “Yellow”

Is there a reason for it? Why does not the colour of an icon change?

lotam,

Can you retype your post in th E-E comment box?

Word and other programs have a difficult time translating special characters.

lotam,

So you upgraded from Access 97 to Access 2002.
Is the Access 97 Icon yellow, or is the Access 2002 icon yellow?
Is this the Icon that is visible for each individual Database, or is this the Icon for the Access executable?
See here:

WHERE are you seeing this “yellow” Icon?
In the Access Title Bar?, In the Start Menu?, On the task Bar? In Windows Explorer?


A few things to check:
Make sure your Display setting for Color is at least: High Color (16 bit),
…and not 256 colors.

You can try changing the Icons by following these steps.
Open any Folder
Click: Tools-->Folder Options
Click the "File Types" Tab
In the "Registered File Types box, find the Access Icon you want to change
Click the "Advanced" Tab
Then Click the "Change Icon" button

But be careful.
Sometimes changing these Icons changes them in a way that they can't be easily returned to the defaults.

Good Luck

I have tried changes to my testing environment (Which is my Local Machine). It works fine.
I have applied changes to live environment, all databases set on local and remote servers.
It works ok on the local machine. I do not see any reason for not working in live environment. Anyway I will test it again before implementing it to live system.

Many thanks for your help
