Developed in Access 2010 - Saved as Access 2003

Hi,
I developed an fairly simple database in Access 2010.

I then "saved as" to Access 2003.

The end user has both access 2010 AND 2007.

The system worked fine on users 2010 system.
However, it is NOT working on the 2007 version.
(Details not fully known at this point ... just a email from user saying "they can't get into options")

I had assumed (!) that if I developed in 2010 and "saved as" 2003 that it would run in 2007.

I will be talking to the end user tomorrow.
Can anybody give me pointers as to why the system would not work given the above.
i.e. Problems - developed in 2010, saved as 2003 and end user running 2007.

Thanks for comments and links - which I am reading.
Unfortunately, I do not have full details of customer problems at present.

However, can I add ONE more point which may (or may not) be relevant.

I have another PC that has Access 2007 where the software works fine.
Any thoughts?  In summary ;

1. Software developed on my PC-A with Access 2010. (Saved as 2003).
2. Software works fine on my PC-B which is Access 2007.
3. Software DOES not work on customers PC which is Access 2007.

I appreciate that there is not full details and good advice has already been given.

 in addition to references, Service Pack level might also be an issue.  really hard to say.

Nonetheless, I gained knowledge from you contributions and links.
