Is this related to membership?

I dont know, but if it is.

I may have been, the one who made the database, if its W5SC membership rooster.

I'll have to look tomorrow, but I should have 2007 MSOffice somewhere.

I will look, if I find it.

I will let you know, if I dont than you want hear from me.

Wonder why you cant open it in capability mode?

Good luck!

So, if you still happen to have Access 2007 installed, can I visit you for an hour or so? Failing that, if you have that version on a CD, can I install it, use it for an hour, then uninstall? This is only legal if you aren't using it for that hour. (I don't think that will be an issue; I just wanted everyone to rest assured there is nothing illegal, immoral, or unethical going on here.)

Dear Jeff ND8B,

 

I checked my computer configuration tracking files.

 

I had Microsoft Access 2003 at one time. When I upgraded to Microsoft Office 2007with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, I retained Access 2003 and Publisher 2003 on my computer. My next major upgrade to Microsoft Office was to Microsoft Office 365 a few years ago probably 2010 or 2013. This package included Access which is now on Access 2016.

 

I know that I had old files from Access 2003 that I have successfully opened and updated with Access 2016. In fact, I open and update .mdb files even now in Access 2016 which is a pre-Access 2007 file format. From what I understand, Access 2016, 2013, 2010, and 2007 all use the .accdb file format as there preferred file and can convert .mdb files to that format. See https://support.office.com/en-us/article/convert-a-database-to-the-accdb-file-format-098ddd31-5f84-4e89-8f44-db0cf7c11acd

 

I hope this helps.

 

Sincerely,

 

Harold
