transfer db from one computer to another

P: n/a
I have a db that I have developed in MS access 97. I want to put it on
my laptop which has MS access 2003. When I open it on the laptop I
cannot make new tables, queries etc. and I can't delete. The security
function won't open. WHAT do I do?????

Access is not backwards compatible. In order to have full access to
the database, you must covert it. Once you do though, Access 97 will
no longer be able to use it.

Actually some versions of Access are indeeds backward compatible. A2000 and newer
can convert to older formats of Access down to A97. A2002 and A2003 can work with
A2000 format MDBs and execute A2000 format MDEs.
