    I have converted from 2003 to 2007. I am not able to open the databse even if
    i change the extension. What does this mean

  2. Try holding down the shift key when you start the database.

    Ctrl+G will take you into the Debug/Immediate window. Then click on
    Tools on the menu bar and References to view the references.

    Do you have any references besides the basic three? Are you sure you
    need them? Write down the path and name of the extra ones (or put the
    following code in a module and execute the code), delete from the
    references list and Compile and Save All. Keep any necessary
    references and ensure they are distributed to the target system.

    Sub ViewReferenceDetails()

    Dim ref As Reference

    For Each ref In Access.References
    Debug.Print ref.Name & " - " & ref.Major & "." & ref.Minor & "
    - " & ref.FullPath
    Next ref

    End Sub

    Sub ViewMoreReferenceDetails()

    Dim refIDE As Object

    For Each refIDE In
    Debug.Print refIDE.Description & " " & _
    IIf(refIDE.IsBroken, "Broken", "") & vbCrLf & _
    " " & refIDE.name & " - " & refIDE.Major & "." & _
    refIDE.Minor & " " & refIDE.FullPath
    Next refIDE

    End Sub
