RE: Importing Access 2007 database to Access 2003

Dear Fiona

Thank you for attending Access 2007 Introduction course!! I hope you enjoyed the course and benefited from it.

It is important to understand that there is no backward compatibility with Office packages.

If you are in Access 2003 and trying to import Access 2007 database object most probably you will not be able to do that.

You best bet would be to open the database in Access 2007 and then use the export option. This will allow you to export in older version. If you need help in how to export or import in Access 2007 please let me know and I should be able to provide you step by step instruction.

I hope this has answered your query.

If this has answered your query then I would request you to please mark the question as resolved!! If not and you have a specific question related to this then please post it as a new question and we should be able to provide you the solution for it!!

Kindest Regards

Access tip:

Space marks

It is good practice not i to have space marks for field names as this can lead to problems when using queries or VBA code. It is much better to use an underscore charcter to represent spaces in field names
