    convert database (97)

    Hi all,
    I have been asked to look at and repair a dB that was created in Access 97. When I try to edit the design I get a message to the effect that this dB was created in 97 and needs to be converted. When I try to do this however the whole program crashes. Do you think it's worth creating a new dB then copying everything into it?
    Regards,
    Van

    If converting won't work, the next step would indeed be to create a blank new database and to try to import as many database objects from the Access 97 database as possible.
