    Windows ME/Access 97

    Has anyone else found a problem with being able to read a database created in Access 97 running under Windows ME in Access 97 running in Windows 98 or Windows NT. I keep on getting a unrecognized Database format message.

    I have also tried opening it with Access 2000 but still get the same message.

    Any ideas (I want to avoid installing Windows ME on another computer as its so incompatible with everything).

    Re: Windows ME/Access 97

    Just some thoughts: I wonder if this is really an operating system problem. It sounds more like either a corrupt database (run jetcomp.exe) or possibly a conflict between Acc'97 and Acc'2000. You mentioned you tried opening in both versions. Do Acc'97 and 2000 both reside on the same system? Although I don't know the specifics, there is a proper way to install both versions on one machine.
