convert Access 2000 db back to Access 97

I have a database that was originally set up in Access 97 (because that
was what we had in the office). We had a copy of Access 2000 set up on
one machine for a brief period to get at another database that required
it. Unfortunately someone used that machine and "upgraded" the Access 97
database to Access 2000.

Now I'm trying to get it back to Access 97 but the "convert to prior
version" function keeps telling me that it can't convert the database
because it's a replica. It isn't. It is the design master. I do have
replicas of it because we used replicas to do work offsite.

I was able to convert the Access 2000 database down to Access 97, so I
know the function does work. However I can't get the function to work
with the database that was up-converted from Access 97.

I also can't export the tables in the database and recreate an Access 97
database from them because two tables are linked on an auto-increment
field. I don't see anyway of preserving the auto-increment during the
export / import steps.

Anyone have any ideas? TIA!

Have you tried importing all the tables, forms etc into a new database
and then saving it as a 97 version?

Hi, This is driving me nuts, I have a table that stores notes regarding an operation in an IMAGE data type field in MS SQL Server 2000. I can read and write no problem using Access using the StrConv function and I can Update the field correctly in T-SQL using: DECLARE @ptrval varbinary(16) SELECT @ptrval = TEXTPTR(BITS_data)

I have been using Access97 for some time now and decided to upgrade to 2000, the problem is when I convert it to 2000 I get the following message "There were compilation errors during the conversion" it looks like it is due to the DAO 2.5/3.5 reference. Is there a conversion utility that I can run to convert it to DAO 3.6 to run in Access 2000 There seems to be a lot of changes required in the module where it is using

Dear Access Gurus, I am tasked with converting an Access 97 Database to A2K. I created Macros, switchboards and used the full feature of buttons on forms. The A97 is also split (FE and BE). Are there any suggestions that I should keep in mind while attempting to do this task ? What can I expect ? Thanks

Can someone familiar with Access 2003 please answer this question? I am asking because I don't have the use of A2003. When Access 2003 finds an Access 2000 database, does it come up with some sort of question/suggestion indicating that you can convert this datbase into the new format? I am trying to trouble shoot a remote site where a big error message indicating the database was converted using the wrong method comes up when they try to...

I need to convert a 17mb access 2000 db to Oracle and house it in a Citrix farm. The issue: we have never converted an Access Db to Oracle but can probably use Oracle's Workbench to assist with this. Also - the citrix folks do not want us to keep the FE in Access as the queries and other activities consume a lot of power. The users will be in 3 different offices across the globe all accessing the 1 Oracle DB in Citrix. Does anyone have...

We designed a custom application using Office Developer Tools '97 which included a Run-time version of Access--- so it would not matter if our customer even had any version of Access on their computer. The application ran without problems on our customer's computer for 2-3 years. Then our customer bought a new computer and we had to reinstall the application. Everything was ok for approximately 6 months until our customer was "cleaning up"...

Hello Group. I work for a company who is about to embark on a long awaited Office upgrade from Office 97 to Office XP. Office XP comes with Access 2002. I am an accomplished Access developer so I have read up on the complexities of upgrade in the corporate environment. Also the need to carry out a full MDB audit to get rid of the redundancy etc etc

Following on from an earlier post... I can reliably corrupt a record by doing the following ... Open two separate but identical front ends on one PC each linking to the same back end. Edit a records in one front end and leave it unsaved. Edit the same record in the other front end and save the change. Save the change in the first front end - this pops up the Write Conflict message to which I click Save.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
