Access 2000 should always be able to open an Access 97 file.

So what is the error you get?

Your options are to see if the file will open properly in access 97

convert the file format to access 2000

Or use some other program to open the access 97 file (like Excel)

There are also repair programs that can repair a damaged access 97 database that you can find by doing a search on the net.

Hi,

Depending on the specific fault, a small microsoft utility, called JETCOMP, may recover the '97 file.

Note that you must select the 3X database format for the destination file.

Good luck
