Experts,
When I try to open a file on a 2003 platform  that I am working on in 2010 but saving the file as 2003 db I get the above error. I'm only building tables on 2010.

I would NOT recommend using Accces 2007 or 2010 if you are goging to runt eh database with Access 2003.

Access 2007/2010 still can use  the JET4 (.mdb) format. But that does not means it will be compatible with Access 2000/2002/2003..  There are new features in Access 200-7/2010 like embedded macros that can be used in an mdb/mde. The work in and mdb/mde if run in Access 2007/2010.  

Downgrade issues:
If you convert a ACE database (accdb) to a JET (.mdb) database the embedded macros are not converted. If Access 2003 can opened the database the embedded macros just don't work.   Not error. Nothing happens.

Every time after you open the database with Access 2007/2010 you will have to open it with Access 2003 and manually downgrade the references, like  for DAO.

My system has Office 2010 and is the only 2010 in the company. We have 40 other systems using Office 2003. I plan to develope my tables in 2010 and time permitting the front end will be in VB 2010 or all in 2010. This database will replace the one that drives this company which is COMPLETELY macros driven.
I sometimes port the tables to 2003 and when I do Iget the referenced error. If the error causes nothing to change regarding my tables, then I'll ignore the error?
