How do you convert an Access .accdb back to .mdb?

I have an access database that is .accdb.  I need to make a copy and convert it back to .mdb.  When I do a Save database as, the choice for .mdb is not an option.

How do I convert it to .mdb.    Both Access 2003 and 2010 are installed on the server.
Microsoft Access

and BTW, I believe the A2002 -2003 .mdb format is Jet 4.0, A2000 JET 3.5, but I'm not 100% on that.

I can't think of any other reason though for having the two different options, although there was a change there in how embedded images were handled and it may be related to that rather than the version of JET.

Don't usually go backwards<g>

Thanks.  I'll try it.  I never have gone backward either.  A customer I have trying to help has lost their .mdb version and are not quite ready to go to 2010.  However, I am going to get them ready soon.
