converting a 97 database to 2003

P: n/a
When I converted a database yesterday I noticed one little thing I had
not seen before.
Any fields on the forms that were visible=no became visible = yes
after the conversion..

Is there any other little things like this that come up that I have
not thought of?

thank you for any info about this

Jerry, the converter sometimes makes mistakes. On rare occasions, I have
seen it convert a text box into a label. Naturally, the converted form was
unusable, as Access had no idea how to handle a label with a Control Source.

For a list of other issues, see:

The article covers setup issues, conversion issues, and usability issues.

well I have been very happy with the conversions and to have it set
all visible was a minor thing but it surprised me. So I had to ask if
there were other things that I should look out for since it didn't
show any errors on conversion.

Big thanks for the link I will have to read up some more.

its those things that dont give errors that scare me

but then I did c++ programming and one syntax error is 103 errors in
the debugger.
no errors means I messed up LOL
