    Unanswered: Converting Access 2000 databases to work with Office 2010


    We have a number of inhouse Access database that were built using Office XP. Currently all of our users run Office XP.

    We are going to be upgrading all of our users to Office 2010. We would like to ensure that our Access databases are still operational.

    Has anyone had any expriences of this?

    What issues were encountered?

    What plans/tasks do I need to consider before the upgrade?

    Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Someone once wrote that Allen Browne, aka 'The Wonder from Down Under,' "knows more about Access than any other man in Australia!" This is an accurate statement except that 'in Australia' should be replaced with 'in the Universe!'

    Allen's Access website is one anyone seriously working in Access has to have bookmarked!

    Microsoft Access help, tutorials, examples

    If you scroll about 90% of the way down the home page you'll see an entire section entitled "Upgrading," giving excellent advice on moving existing Access databases up through the each of the versions.

    Besides keeping Allen's URL handy, it would probably be a good idea to upgrade a single machine to 2010 to use for development, and start checking the apps out in advance of the upgrading for the entire workforce.

    Good luck in your conversion!
