Access errors when opening DB on system with different codepage

Hi there,

I got an MS Access DB, which is causing problems when the client PC is
running using a Traditional Chinese codepage.

The DB was probably created with Access 97, Western European codepage.
However, the DB I got is now already in Access 2002 / 2003 file format,
thus should be already converted to Unicode.

When I open the DB on my PC with Western European codepage, it runs
well. When I change my codepage to Traditional Chinese or run it on
another PC with Traditional Chinese codepage, I have several error

o "Method 'ActiveForm' of object 'Screen' failed"
o "The expression On Click you entered as the event property setting
produced the following error: A problem occurred while DB was
communicating with the OLE server or ActiveX Control."
o "The OpenForm action was canceled."
o "The OpenReport action was canceled."
o Some forms are asking for parameters when opening them, although the
aren't supposed to.

Once the DB was opened on a Chinese system, it will also produce the
same errors on the system with Western European codepage. Thus the
opening of the DB on the Chinese system is changing the DB somehow.

How can I convert my DB in a way that makes it run on all systems,
regardless of codepage?

All systems I use are Windows XP with all patches applied and MS Access
2003 (Version 11.6566.6568) SP2.
