hey guys, i was working with an mdb file with mdb backend not accdb back end.

i made a mistake with it and restored a previous version via dropbox. now the file has become an accdb extension.

can i just change it back to .mdb?

how can i be for certain it's the 2003 format of jet database? on the titlebar it shows 2002-2003 format2003

Rename it. Dropbax cannot convert files.

And then you may have to look at SkyDrive which doesn't do such tricks.
