    Upgrade MDA files to MDW files (A97/A2000)

    I have a number of A97 databases that have security workgroup information stored in an MDA file, which is a legacy of Access 2.0. I now need to upgrade all my DBs to Access 2000 and I was wondering if it is possible to use MDA files in Access 2000? Whether it is or not, does anyone know of a utility that will convert MDA to MDW files for me rather than recreating every user and recreating all the permissions?

    Thanks

    It seems to me that either Access 97 or 95 had a conversion utility you could use, but I don't have either to check it any more. Maybe someone else will remember the details.
