    Hi all,

    I have a compatibility problem between Microsoft Access 2010 and Access 2007. The problem is that a few months ago I needed to take an access file home from my school which runs Access 2007, but I did not have access on my home PC so I downloaded a trail version of Access 2010. I then made some changes to the database file on my home pc e.g. add buttons, create menus etc to the best of my knowledge I only added features that I would use in school on access 2007.

    When saving I just press the save button because it said at the top clearly "filename: database (Access 2007)" (See attached photo) this leads me to believe that it should have not problem is working at school on access 2007. unfortunately this was not the case now every time I attempt to open the saved file in school it says that the file is not recognised and is unable to open . I have tried to use the Microsoft how-to to attempt to correct this problem here but this has not worked. This is a very annoying and inconvenient problem any help would be greatly appreciated:confused:
