    project locked (2000)

    Hi All,
    I have a front end that is running on WIndows XP using Access 2000 format. I created a personal certificate so I would not get a pop up security window every time I opened the database. When I copy this front end to another computer running Windows 98 with Access 2000, I cannot open the event procedures for the command buttons. The visual basic editor opens up but a window pops up stating that the project is locked and that the project is unviewable.
    Do you think the personal certificate is keeping me from looking at the code? Is there anyway for me to work on this front end with the Windows 98 computer?
    Thank you. John

    Neither Access 2000 nor 2002 had that kind of security provision, only Access 2003. The file format is not the same thing as version of Access you're running, since both 2002 and 2003 allow for multiple file formats. Can you fill in the blanks for us?

    Hi Charlotte,
    The XP computer is running Access 2003. The database is saved in Access2000 format so that the Win98 computer running Access2000 can open up the database.
    Is this what is causing my problem or is it something else?
    Thank you for your reply.

    Yes, this is what's causing the problem. You can't use digital signing and then open the project in Access 2000.
