Can't copy record

P: n/a
Just installed Access 2000 on a new WinXP computer and imported (converted)
a single user Access 97 database. When I try to manually "copy" a record,
the "cut", "copy", and "paste" options immediately grey out, and don't come
back until I restart Access. MS' terminally inscrutable 'help' doesn't
help, and I've tried everything I can think of. Been using this database
for 5 years in Access 97--what's changed?

Have you applied all three Service Packs to Office or Access 2000? It was
notably buggy and the SPs resolved many of the most egregious of the issues.
The only problem I ever had converting an Access 97 database was when there
was a compile error in the original Access 97 database. I found two ways to
fix that, the easiest being to go back to Access 97 and correct the problem
that caused the compile error. An alternative was to simply open the
offending module in Access 97, copy, then paste the code into the module in
the Access 2000 database where the code had not been transferred and fix it
there.

If all your objects did transfer, you may be able to compile and fix any
compile errors. Then again, you may have run into an entirely different
problem.
