    Open or convert database file into earlier Access version?

    friends,

    I have a database in version 2007 (accdb), you can open this database in an earlier version of Access, 2000 for example? or, you can convert this bank?

    The bank has only tables.

    Thank you.

    You can't open it in an earlier version. You can, however, save the database in any of the earlier formats, Fabio.

    Rui, thanks for help.

    I tried to save, but I get the following message:

    You can not save this database in an earlier version because it uses resources
    that require the current file format.

    These features include attachments, multivalued fields, offline data or bonds
    to external files for which there is no support in earlier versions of Access.
