    Unanswered: Saving from '07 to '03

    I haevn't been able to find a way to do this. But I have a database in MS Access 2007 that I unfortunatly need to save down to MS Access 2003 from 2007.

    I don't want to do it but there are some users in my organization that do not have 2007 and to upgrade them would cost to much since they have Stand Alone installs of the software and not part of the package.

    Is there an easy way to do this or Would I have to build the DB as 2003 from scratch???

    or consider deploying a version of Access runtime, which I think for 2007 on is Free
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    Runtime for 2007/2010 is, indeed, free for download, but I'm not certain that running Runtime for 2007/2010 and a full version of Access 2003, on the same machine, is a good idea. At any rate, to answer to the original question:
    • Click on the Office Button (top, left)
    • Hover over Save As
    • Click on Access 2002/2003 Database

    The saved db should then be compatible with version 2003.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks. That is great help. I tried that before but I was saving an object not the entire database.
