Generally, if you have installed the 32-bit version of Office 2010  (note that Microsoft recommends against the 64-bit version, even on 64-bit machines) on your computer you should be able to open your database in Access 2010 with no (or few) changes.

You'll have to click the "enable" button at the top of the Access window to allow any code to run or place the database in a trusted location.  See this:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel-help/add-remove-or-change-a-trusted-location-HA010354311.aspx

You may also need to set/change references.  Open the vba editor and click tools --> references.  Uncheck any that are labeled MISSING and replace them with the current version from the list provided.  Click OK to save and exit the references dialog.

Have you run into any specific problems with this conversion?

I'd be extremely surprised if that has anything to do with the version of Access.

Without seeing the actual database, though it is nearly impossible to tell why that is happening.

Best guess though, is that the sorting of the underlying table may have been changed.  Possibly by a user viewing the form, possibly by someone directly filtering/sorting the table through its datasheet view...  It could also reflect records added, records deleted, etc.

At any rate, it is not an 'error' - it is just the ordering of the data -- which can be affected by a variety of causes.  (and for which reason the recordcount shown with the navigation buttons should NEVER be considered a reliable indicator of the order of your records).  

If you have a primary key field (auto number) try re-sorting the data, in ascending order, on that field.

Also, just for kicks, try compact/repairing your database.

What is your form's record source property?

Make a backup of your database.

 If it is a single table, open that table in datasheet view. Click on the blank record and click the delete button.
