How to copy form: Access 2003 to Access 97

P: n/a
Hi all,

I have converted a database from Access 2003 to Access 97. Everything
gets neatly imported into the new database except for one form which
continues to show a fatal error when I try to open it in the new 97

"Microsoft Access has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are
sorry for the inconvenience.
If you were in the middle of something, the information you were
working on might be lost.
For more information about this error, click here ___."

This is a form that I am using as a sub-form on a parent form. The
parent form is imported okay but no matter how many times and in how
many different ways I try to get this sub-form into Access 97, it just
won't work. Does anyone out there have any ideas on how I can get it
into an Access 97 database without error so that I do not have to
re-create it? Or why is this happening.

Thank you.

you can try SaveAsText, but I don't know if that'll work. Might need
to bite the bullet and rebuild it.

I found a work around and have the form in Access 97, but I am
struggling with something else now :)

Thanks for your input.
