I opened a 2003 database in 2010 and the interface looks great, it displays the data but my command buttons do not fire events etc.

Can an expert provide me with the appropriate resource (links and advice) to convert an Access 2003 database to an Access 2010 database?

Do this first:

Open the VBA Editor >> Tools >> References ... and see if any are listed as:

** Missing <SomeReferenceName>

Sounds like the VBA is not enabled. Make sure that you trust the document  or set up a trusted location.

See my article here:
Trust Center in Access 2007 and 2010 Trusted Locations

I have Access 2003 MDEs that run under 2007 SP2 and 2010 just fine without any modifications. . The key was enabling the VBA by creating a trusted location.

I've found the Trust Center but am unsure which settings need to change in order for my VBA code to fire.  

These are the menus I see in the Trust Center: Please advise:

Trusted Publishers
Trusted Locations
Trusted Documents
Add-ins
ActiveX Settings
Macro Settings
DEP Settings
Message Bar
Privacy Options

To start with, create a Trusted Location(s) ... and be sure your db(s) are in the Trusted Location(s).

I created a Trusted Locations and now I'm getting an error that I'm missing the reference to utility.mda

I look in references and it's path is: c:\program files\microsoft office\office 11\utility.mda

where could I find one that works with Version 2010?

All three of you provided solutions to the answer, it was a trust center issue and references missing. I hope you agree with splitting the points.  Thank you for the reference links - very helpful.

Just remove that Reference.  Highly unlikely you need it.  This seems to be a common missing reference.
