    Removing Security form 2003 Database

    I used Access 2003 to create a database and use the MDW feature to secure it.

    Since them, the company has update MS Office to 2007. I am trying to conver the database to accdb.



    1) I enable the MDW feature in 2007 so that I can get into 2003 database.
    2) I try and use the conversion tool but I get the following error. "You attampted to open a database that is already opened exclusivly by username (which is me)"

    I tried to remove the security feature but if I change to the standard MDW I cannot open the 2003 database.

    Any suggestions?

    You no longer have Access 2003 available?

    I have never protected a project to this degree, never used mdw. I don't know if there are any work arounds.
