Access 2002 db opened with access 2003

P: n/a
I asked before, maybe not clearly.

I have a 20Meg .mdb file (A2002) that I open with Access 2003, without any
error msg. However it only contains one small table with 15 small records.
This file is suppost to 1000s of records (sales for the past few months)

Just for the hell of it, I saved it as an Access 2000 file and the resulting
..mdb is only 190kb.

Where is the data going?

Thanks
David

It was probably compressed when saving in another version! Try to compress
the original DB, and see what happens.
