Convert Access 2003 to 2007

Posted on 2007-12-04

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

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
