Unless security has been applied to the database you should get the option to Upgrade it when you try to open it in Access 2000.

If you get this option to upgrade, follow the prompts and save the new file as a different database name to prevent overwriting the original.

If you get a specific error message it is probably down to having security applied to the database or that it has been compiled as part of a distributed program which will present real problems.

Copy any error messages you get and post them in here.

I've just resolved an Access file that wouldn't open, but it was on a floppy. It was made on 98SE and wouldn't open on XP click here TR
