    I got a 'unsupported browser' message when using Firefox on the Office website. I don't understand why this site should care what browser I use, as long as it is HTML standards-compliant. Why the message? I suggest supporting HTML and letting people use any browser that supports displaying HTML... simple enough, no?

    Contact list became corrupted when I used Intellimover Transfer Your PC from Windows ME Pentium 2 (Office 2000) to Windows XP Pro Pentium 4 (Office 2003). Unfortunately Microsoft used same data file extensions (*.pst), but stored data in a DIFFERENT FORMAT! Also, Outlook 2003 contact list is not synchronized with e-mail contact list. When I change info in my contact list, it doesn't change in my e-mail To: or CC: lists. Or, it has the first and last name reversed, or it has a totally different name than the Outlook contact list. Any one else have same problem?

access xp cant open access 97 mdb with security

Postby jose » Sat, 27 Sep 2003 00:19:33 GMT

   I have upgraded my office97 to officexp.  
    When I try to open access97 database with user 
security, accessxp tells that,  I don't have permissions 
to open it, if I'm not the owner.  
    I only can open this database like this:  
    -  if the database's owner open it before me the first 
time, because if I open before the database's owner I 
can't open it  
   Any ideas?

1.Opening security-enabled Access 97 mdb

My company currently uses Access 2003.  We have an Access 97 database that 
was apparently created with a restricted user list.  None of the folks that 
would have been on that list work here anymore.  (We get "The current user 
account doesn't have permission to convert or enable this database" error 
when trying to open it.)  Is there any workaround to give us access to the 
data?  Thanks.

2.Access 97 cant open in Windows XP

Currently i do have Access 2002 which has no problems running. Can someone tell me how do i get the 97 version running as well.


3.Unable to open Access 95 mdb in Access 97


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!

4.Access 97 .mdb won't open in access 2003

I have an access 97 database that I am attempting to open in access 
2003.  It sez:  "unrecognized database format'C:documents and 
settings\My Name\desktop\tilium roster.mdb'.

I click help and it gives it as error 3343 with suggested solutions.

I don't have access 97 any longer to look at it for it's sorting order 
or whether there was anything like  a *commit* in/on it.  I don't even 
know what those terms refer to.  It is a Very simply database with 
nothing hidden nor scripted.

Is there any way to see the info so I cam at least salvage my info

I thought .mdb _was_ the correct format??

Hope someone can walk me thru this.



5.Opening Access 97 mdb's with Access 2003 OK?

We have a tool built for determing which Access version an mdb is that
works nicely.  Problem is, hundreds of PC's here are getting reimaged
without it(!)

Since I've been unable to solve that problem, am quite interested in
this. Can an Access 97 be harmed by opening it with the Access 2003
app as a User of the mdb.?  We have LOTS of this happening here and
I'm starting to research if/how much of a problem this is.  If the
Users have no need to change objects, (Tbls/Qrys/Forms etc..), perhaps
its OK for them to View Tbls/Qrys/Macros results, even change table
data with the v2003 app.

I have converted LOTS of the mdb's to v2003, but hundreds more v97's
are out there my scans are showing.

Thx of course for info
