Can you open a database created in Access 2007 using Access 2003?

Hi Experts,

I created a database using Microsoft Access 2007, and put it on a computer that uses Microsoft Access 2003.  I can't get the database to open properly using 2003.  Any ideas?  Thanks.

Laura,

MS has published a compatibility pack that allows you to open Excel, PP, and Word 2007 files in Office 2003,
but AFAIK no such option exists yet for Access.

Oh, that's really bad, this db is for a client and they are kind of in a hurry.  Ok, thanks for the heads up.  Have a nice evening :-)

Glad to help.  Can you have someone with 2007 try to save it down to 2003 or 2000?

I am stuck on Office 2003, so I am not sure.

What I would try to do is create a blank 2000-2003 database (*.mdb) and then attempt to import all your objects from the 2007 database into the 2003 version.

Good Luck.
