Saving an .MDB as a .accdb

I am working with some legacy MDB's in Access 2010 that must be upgraded to .accdb's.  I thought that 'Save Database As' option on the file menu would allow me to do that.  When I do the save as I overtype 'DBName.MDB' with DBName.accdb but the type on the file type line cannot be altered.

How do I save a .MDB as an .accdb?  The MDB has to be in the newer format to link in some other database tables that are in the .accdb format.

This might work: create a new, blank database (which will be .accdb). Then import all the objects from your old mdb to your new database (accdb)
