    No Access 2010 available here, only Access 2000 !

    Then I don't see a way, because Office 2000 (Access 2000) is not going to recognize the ACCDB format ...

    Should not be hard to find someone with A2010 to do this for you :-)

    I was hoping on doing it all the time without purchase orders etc. etc. etc., but sometimes 12 year old stuff has to be replaced!
