    Unable to open the database in Acess 2007

    I have created a database in Access 2010 and I am not able to open the same database in Access 2007. I have read somewhere that it is possible to open. I get the message, " Unrecognized database format". In Access options, the default file format is, "Access 2007".

    Some will some won't. Some feature in the db is causing incompatibility. Could be data macros or something really obscure. Sometimes 2007 just can't handle the 2010 file.
    How to attach file: To provide db: copy, remove confidential data, run compact & repair, zip w/Windows Compression.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
