I wrote a database in Access 2003. All was working. I exported a report into Excel 5 format. With the upgrade to 2007 I get the mesage: "The format in which you are attempting to output the current object is not available".
I checked the References and all required references are checked vers.12 now.
What do I have to do?

Hi tbsqadi,
I use a report to transfer data into an Excel file, manipulate it and save the Excel file on drive. The same in reverse direction. How is it done in Access 2007 ?

Best regards Josh

What are the guys at Microsoft thinking???

I have to look deeper into that stuff. My client upgraded the software and I am behind (still using 2003). Until I upgraded I am not be able to fix the issue.

Thanks alot.

How are you guys discussing this stupid stuff with your customers? Spending quiet some time and money to get it to work and then suddenly: IT"S OVER!
All this neat stuff, now I have to start over again incl. trouble shooting.......

Will Microsoft ever go a step forward?
Any experience with LINUX or OpenOffice, regarding Database?
Thanks Josh
