Unable to open Access 95 mdb in Access 97

Postby Jacqueline » Tue, 23 Dec 2003 23:21:12 GMT


I am trying to open an old Access 95 mdb in Access 97...I 
didn't create it but someone who knew the database way 
back when said that a system.mda file was created for 
that particular database because it had a lot of personal 
info in it.
(I am not familiar with mda files...the database folder 
also had a system.ldb file there as well...I deleted that 
file...but am unsure why it wasn't closed out to begin 

I was able to open Access 97 and repair it...but when I 
go to open it in Access 97...I get an Automation 
Error...Cannot find VEENLR3.hlp file.

Do you think it may have some corrupt/or conflicting VBA 

Any help greatly appreciated!

1.Opening Access 97 file in Access 95

Hi Brandie,

Access 95 cannot open Access 97 mdb files, and as far as I can remember
Access 97 cannot convert them to Access 95 format.

The simplest way I know to transfer data from Access 97 to the earlier
version is to export it to text (csv) files or .dbf files, and then
import these.

2.Opening Access 97 DB in Access for Windows 95

I just installed Access from a MS Office Professional for 
Window 95 CD.  I have a DB which was created in Access 
97.  When I try to open the Access 97 db in the newly 
installed Access application, I get an error message 
stating 'Index1' isn't an index on this table.  

The Help feature is telling me that the Error number is 
3015, and provides the following verbiage: 

"You tried to use a value that isn't an index. You can 
determine the valid index names by looking in the Indexes 
collection of the TableDef object."

Help! Can I not open an Access 97 DB in an older version 
of Access (again the Access application I installed was 
from a Microsoft Office Professional & Bookshelf CD which 
was designed for Windows '95)?

I would appreciate any insight anyone can provide.



3.Open Access 97 Files in Access 95

"You can't get there from here"!

To open an Access 97 mdb and use the front end you need Access 97 or later.
To get at just the data you may be able to use some other application that's
compatible with Access 97 - such as MS Query.

4.Convert Access 97 file for use in Access 95

> data itself can easily be converted (e.g. by exportin

The data itself does not need to be converted. Since
both A97 and A95 use the same file format (Jet 3.x),
you can import the data into an A95 database directly
from an A97 database.


5.Unable to upgrade to Access 2000 from Access 97 and preserver Access 97


I have a workstation running W2K Service pack 4.  On the machine is
Access 97.  When I load Access 2000 to a unique directory it skips the
part on asking me to preserve Access 97.  After the install 97 is

I removed Access 2000 and installed Access 97 again.  I tried to
install Access 2000 into the same directory as 97 and it still skips
that step of asking me to preserve.

Anyone know if this is a registry setting that is having me skip this?

I tried both an upgrade version of Access 2000 and a full version of
Access 2000.
