    Hello, I have a been tasked to move an entire Microsoft Access 2003 database from one computer to another.

    The machine that has the database on is running Windows Xp servicepack 3

    I want to transfer the entire database to a machine running Windows 7 and Microsoft Access 2007.

    What is the easiest and safest way to do this?

    I am a newbie at this so your help would be gratefully received.

    Thanks

    Copy the file to a thumb drive or across the network. THe only issue with Access 2007 might be the trusted locations setings for where the database would be running from.

    Thanks Rockn it worked a treat Db only running on a stand alone machine, so no trusted location issues.
