hello,
I have a DB i just created and it says in brackets that it is an Access 2000 file format.

my DB works fine and will probly be used to eventually convert into an SQL DB so should i convert my access 2000 file format DB to 2003 file format or will i be able to do that later when/if i convert it to an SQL DB?

If you convert it to a SQL db then there would be no need to convert to Access 2003 format, would there? As long as SQL Server Migration Assistant works with it there shouldn't be anything to worry about, and SSMA will work with format from 97 to 2007.
