using database from different versions

P: n/a
Is it possible to use\view a database that was built using
Access 2000 with Access 97. Are there some steps that can be
taken to make them compatible. I get a "unrecognized database
format" error message when try to open it in '97.
Thanks

In Access 2000 or later you can convert a database to Access 97 file
format. But as the warning message will tell you "any functionality
specific to Access 2000 or later will be lost".

Thanks for the reply. One more question, since I am a novice
user, where would I look for the conversion utility in access 00
or 03. Is it under tools or file?? I only have limited use of
the computer that has the newer version so would have to really
know what I am looking for when I go to do this.
Thanks again

It's under Tools / Database utilities / Convert. (I have Access 2003.)
