You cannot create a .mde file using Access 2007 or 2010. You can only create .accde files (which cannot be run by users running earlier versions of Access).

If you need to create .mde files you'll need to keep a copy of Access 2003 around to do this, and you'll also need to be SURE to NOT use any features specific to later versions of Access (like Attachment fields, for example).

I don't understand this.  I thought I closed this normally, splitting the points between the 2 experts.  And I still want to do this.

There's a bug in the close process. The question will close in about 4 days, with points split between me and cap. If that's NOT what you intended to do, then click the Object button and ask the Moderators for assistance.

LMSConsulting,

Thanks, I'm glad it was not my error.  I will leave it as is because I want to split the points between you and Cap.
