    Converted ACCDB to ACCDE but ACCDE fails

    Hi,

    I have an large Access 2003 database that functions 100% as both an .mdb and an .mde file in Access 2003. I converted the file to an Access 2010 .accdb file, and
    then compiled and compacted that file. The Access 2010 .accdb file works 100%
    also.

    When I 'Save & Publish' the .accdb as an .accde, the .accde file fails right away
    and on most function buttons. I have listed the folder these files reside in as a
    "Trusted Location", but I am stuck.

    Hard to understand how the .accdb can work and compile flawlessly, and the
    .accde fails consistently. HELP!!!

    Thanks very much for your time folks...

    What exactly do you mean by "fails"?

    Also, why do you want to use the .accdb/e format? I find very few advantages to it and it is not downward compatible, so we continue to use the .mdb/e format with Access 2007 and 2010.
