    I can hardly believe it. I'm sitting down to start a new db and I realize that this is my first "from scratch" db in 2007. While I'm working with older databases in 2007, they are still all using the .mdb format.
    While I've read information like this I'm wondering what the experts think about accdb vs mdb.

    I always use mdb format.

    There is nothing much in the list of new features available in accdb format that attract me, so I stick with what I am used to.

    I develop for others, so I also like to preserve compatibility with older versions of Access.
    Regards
