    Two different versions of the same file? (Access 97 / Access 2002)

    I just made changes to a database file using 97. When I open the same file in 2002, the changes are not there. It's as if I never made them to the form. If I reopen the file in '97, the new changes are there. I don't understand how the same file can be different. I restarted my computer just in case there was something in the cache but no change. How do I make 2002 recognize the changes I made?
    Thanks

    Open the Database in Access 97.
    Open a module in design view.
    In the Debug menu, click Compile and Save All Modules.
    Close the database and restart it from Access 2002

    Hi Francois,
    Thanks for your reply. I opened the database this morning and I don't have anything in the "Modules" tab. I couldn't find the debug menu either. Any other suggestions? Thanks

    Just open a new Module. You don't have to save it when you close it.
    You could also open a form or a report with code and go to this code .
