    Force no convert option (97)

    I have an Access 97 database that is sometimes opened by Access 2000. When that happens, it gives the user the option of converting the database. I do not want to depend on the user remembering NOT to make the conversion. Is there a way to do this?

    The problem is that this is a user setting, not a database setting. The Access 97 database doesn't even know that Access 2000 exists, so you can't set anything in the database to prevent conversion.

    There is a registry setting to suppress the Convert-or-Open dialog, see ACC2000: How to Suppress the Convert/Open Database Dialog Box. If you are in a network environment, you might enforce this setting by a policy; the network administrator should be able to do this.

    Ugh! That makes perfect sense, I should have thought of that.
