I'm trying to convert an old Access 2002 .mdb file to an Access 2010 .accdb file. I already decoded the file using Access 2003.
The file uses a .mdw file for workgroup security and runs by clicking a link file that has the following link text:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\MSACCESS.E
XE" "Y:\General\Check Requests\Database\Check Requests.mdb" /WRKGRP "Y:\General\Check Requests\Database\Secured.
Microsoft's instructions for up converting are contained on this page: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/access-help/convert-a-database-to-the-accdb-file-format-HA010341552.aspx
When I try to Save and Publish the file as a .accdb file, I get the following error message:
"Could not use 'Y:\General\Check Requests\Database\Check Requests.mdb'; file already in use."
No one else has the file open, and I have to have the file open to convert it.
