MS Access 2010 compatibility with Access 2007 issue

Hi,

I have an access database that is being developed in Access 2010.  For some reason I have done something that has stopped it from being backwardly compatible with Access 2007.  As we have a mixed environment of Access 2007 and Access 2010 I can no longer release the new version of my database.

Is there an easy way to work out what function is being used that has stopped it from being backwardly compatible or if there is a way to fix it.

Thanks in advance

Defining 'something', or at least spelling out the error(s) you are experiencing when running the app in 2007, would be an excellent first step.

There is a specific list of things that will cause incompatibility, are you using any of them?

You are probably wasting your time trying to make a 2010 app compatible with 2007.
MS's list of issues to address is probably less than half the story. But of course you could be lucky and hit the one thing that makes it work in your case.
You'll find thousands of posts on google addressing the same subject and each of them will involve a different 'solution'.
My contribution to any attempt you make is.... get rid of all layouts in forms.
