We updated our office computers from Windows  XP to windows 7;  The access program was updated from Access 2002 to Access 2010.  Any of the old data bases that we try to open end up as a blank page with a little book in the middle.  

I have tried to do an open with, but the suggested program is word.  So far I haven't been able to find a way to even choose Assess 2010 to open the data base.  I looked for a way to open access and then choose the file, but I don't know the program and have had no luck finding a way to do that.

Thanks

you should be able to open this and then save as the new format..  strange.  Have a look at this guide but I can't promise anything .

These are very good instructions on dealing with these data bases.  I am finding that a lot of my problem is that I don't know the Access program at all, so I don't even know when I am where I need to get.
