Access 2007 back to Access 2003

P: 2
Hi

Does anyone know if there's a way to view either the actual database, or the code behind it, that was created in Access 2007 on a system running Access 2003??

Thanks

To the best of my knowledge, there is no way to do what you are requesting. For the most part Microsoft Access is Backward, not Forward, compatible.

You could save the Access 2007 database in 2003 format if you haven't used things like the ribbon that are specific to 2007.

cheers,

Did you not realise when developing it that you would need it in 2003 format?

It's hard to envision how you got into the position in the first place, there's not much info in the question.
