Do you have all the updates installed for:
Office 2003
Office 2010
Your Version of Windows.

What exactly happens when you try to open the link table manager in Access 2003?

It only opens in access2010 .I want to be able to open in both

If you uninstall *just* access 2010, does it work again in Access 2003?

If so, then re-install access 2010 again.

Not sure. (as most people have ungraded incrementally from 2003-->2007-->2010

If the DB is still in the Access 2003 format then open the DB in Access 2003 and run the compact/repair Utility on the Front end and the back end db.
Then retest.

If that does not work, then create a blank new Front end and back end database and import all the objects from the original db's.
The retest.

If nether of these work, then I suggest you contact Microsoft directly.

I don't know it it is an option or not , but you might try upgrading to Access 2007 first.

I have not heard any issues with the L.T.M.  going from 2003 to 2007.

Sorry I could not be of more help...
