Without knowing anything about your database, it's hard to say.

The migration from Access 2003 to 2007 is straight forward in most cases.

What happens when you try to run your database on your new PC?

If existing code is causing errors, you may need to open the Visual Basic editor and click Tools--> References, uncheck any that are MISSING and update the references with the new version.

Start by simply copying your application to your new PC, using the same file/folder structure as on your old PC.

Once you do that, are you able to open the database?
