Transfer "Access 97" to new computer (XP Operating System)

MS Office Access


  • 1. The first column (Places?) before Edit then view has disappeared .
    OFFICE 2000: Whilst clicking on"Customise" the screen froze. On restoring I noticed that the File header which contains amongst other things New file/save/save as etc.has disappeared. I have been unable to restore it so I uninstalled the Office 200o programme and then reloaded but the File header which should come before "Edit" has not come back. Can anyone offer help urgently?
  • 2. You do not have permission...
    I'm not sure which group this goes into, so bear with me. First, you should know there is no security settings on the databases I'm working with, so I know this error doesn't stem from that. In any database I'm using, whenever I try to use the Input Mask Wizard, Form Wizard, or Report Wizard, I get an error message that reads "You do not have the necessary permissions to use the 'C:\Documents and Settings\...\Access\ACWZUSRT.MDT' object. Have your system administrator or the person who created this object establish the appropriate permissions for you." Then, I usually get booted out of Access 2002 and it restarts after creating a backup for me. I know that ACWZUSRT.MDT is a hidden file that controls the input mask wizard, but why would I not have persmission to use this after I've had no problems in the past? Better yet, how do I fix it now? Thanks!
  • 3. I cannot print from an Access 2003 report to a PDF file
    OS is Windows 2000... using Access 2003, and Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Standard is installed. When I try to print my Access 2003 report to a PDF file, it acts as if it is working, but instead of a PDF file I get a .log file that starts out with this text: %%[ ProductName: Distiller ]%% %%[ Error: rangecheck; OffendingCommand: endcidrange ]%% Stack: 50376 () () 50375 () AND ENDS WITH THIS>>> (m) (m) -mark- %%[ Flushing: rest of job (to end-of-file) will be ignored ]%% %%[ Warning: PostScript error. No PDF file produced. ] %% Help!!! I need to email these Access reports asap! Thanks, Kris
  • 4. Access 2000 with Access 2002

  • 5. Can't start Access in Office 97 Re-install
    Do to system problems I recently had to format my hard drive and re-install the operating system. Afterwords I re-installed much of my software including MS Office 97. Word, Excel and PowerPoint work fine, but I cannot open Access. I get the message "MS Access can't start because there is no license for it on this machine. I can't get anywhere with Microsoft getting messages that my PID is invalid and they no longer support Office 97. Does anyone have any suggestions, thanks.

Transfer "Access 97" to new computer (XP Operating System)

Postby Rich » Fri, 15 Aug 2003 04:58:29 GMT

I'm trying to move my old Office Pro Access 97 program and 
files from a Window 98 computer to a new computer with an 
XP Home Operating System.  

1) I tried to install just Access and PowerPoint from my 
Office 97 Pro CD-ROM.  PowerPoint works fine, but Access 
won't start (message says there is no license on this 

2) I tried copying over all Office 97 Professional 
programs and files from the old computer via ethernet 
connection to the new computer.  All programs work fine, 
except Access.

I looked in vain for help on Microsoft support web site.

If you can help me move Access to my new comupter before I 
get rid of it from my old one, I'd appreciate an email.

3.Sharing Access 97 Database on NT and XP Operating Systems

I am trying to share an Access 97 database amongst Windows 
NT and XP users.  To make matters worse, NT machines are 
running Office 97 Professional and XP machines are running 
Office XP.  Within the application the need exists to use 
Excel to import .csv files in addition for browsing 
files.  When application is opened in XP (and a minor 
change to a form made) the next time an NT users opens 
app, an error occurs missing Excel 10 library.  User can 
remove error by removing check from missing reference 
library Excel 10 (Excel.exe), and clicking Excel 8 
(Excel8.olb).  This process is too cumbersome for the 
average user.  Is there any way to make this sharing issue 
go away?  It will be several more months before my entire 
Company moves to XP.

4.New Computer Office 97 on Old computer upgrade to Office XP

I have a beat up old (5 years) laptop with Office 97 on 

I've now purchased a new computer.

I want to install Office XP on the new computer but want 
to use the upgrade version rather than pay the full 
purchase price like I did for the Office 97 residing on 
the old laptop.

How do I get the upgrade version to recognize that I do 
in fact own the old Office 97 version.  It's just on a 
different computer that will no longer be used.

5.Problem with Office 97 (Excel 97) installed on a brand new XP computer

Two months ago I purchased a brand new eMachine computer with Windows
XP pre- installed on it.    Being unemployed and a bit poor these
days, I could not afford a new version of Office, so I installed my
old Office 97 from my dead computer onto the new machine and installed
all the upgrades, service packs and known bug fixes to make it work
with XP.

All is well except that every time I cut (or copy) and paste something
to a new spot on an Excel 97 spreadsheet, the font shows up
temporarily bold.  It goes away (i.e., goes back to unbold) if you go
to a different area of the spreadsheet and then return to the pasted
area (i.e., refresh the area), so it is not the end of the world...
but it is still kind of a pain in the behind when everything else
works fine.

Is this the fault of the new computer's graphics capability?  Or is it
yet another incompatibility issue (bug) when trying to use Excel 97 on
an XP machine?  Most importantly, is there a solution out there???

Thanks for any/all help,
