Copying access 97 database tables to another access 97 database using access 2003

I have 2 Access 97 databases. There's a compiled VB6 excutable that uses these databases but we can't find the source code for the exe. We started getting runtime null errors and suspect it's a data error.

I'd like to copy one table from one db  to the other. However, I only have Access 2003.

When I open the 97 db in 2003, it says:
"You can't make changes to the database objects in the database 'my97db'."

I cannot perform Get External Data - Import when I'm in 2003. So I converted the 97 db to 2003 and imported the tables I needed. When I try to convert the 2003 back to 97, I get the following error:

"Your computer is missing at least one of the Microsoft Access 97 object libraries. your converted database will not work until you open this database using Access 97 and then fix any missing references."

Since I don't have Access 97, I cannot open it in 97.

help!

If you remove the data (perhaps insert some sample data), compact and zip, then attach it here, happy to open it in 97 and see what happens.

I was able to save it to 2000 format and all seems to be ok now.

Thanks all for help!

Although I didn't use either solutions, I gave most points to kbirecki since his solution was more complete and gave some points to burrcm to thank him for offering to help.

Thanks!
