I would like to try using ANSI-92 for my SQL, as I believe it will offer extra features I need.

I have a procedure to convert an existing Access 2003 database to ANSI-92.

Can an Expert please tell me how I do this in Access 2007, to my Access 2003 database (.mdb file)

    hi thydzik,
    - to switch to ANSI-92 in Access 2007:
    : open Ms Access
    : click the Office button on top left
    : click "Access Options" button
    : select "Object Designers" from the left pane
    : look for "Query Design" section, there is an option "SQL Server Compatible Syntac (ANSI 92).
    : if you have an open database, you can check on "This Database" or check the "Default for new databases" for default setup on all new databases
    : click "OK" button to accept the changes
