Hi

I just installed Microsoft Office 2007 SP2 from the following download
http://www.microsoft.com/en-za/download/details.aspx?id=5

I installed it so that  could open an Access 2010 file in my Access 2007.

I still get the error "Unrecognized database format"

What am I missing?

See my Access Archon article on this topic -- the .accdb format isn't quite the same between 2007 and 2010.
