Problem saving an old access database

Mum has asked me to print off an old access database. I tried access 2007 but it refused to open it citing security concerns and other reasons. So I then tried Access 2002 in XP Mode but save as is greyed out and export to says it cant find the path.

What version was the DB originally created in?

No matter which, the 2007 version should open it fine... just ignore the security warnings... they appear on many of my old DB's from 03 and previous versions. Yet after ignoring the warnings they open just fine. Once you do open it, save as a Access 2007 file format and you will be fine in the future. Office 2010 due out later this year!

Im not sure which version of office it was but may have been 2002. Ive managed to get it to open by ignoring the seucity warning. tbh those warnings are pointless on my computer. I can understand them in an office environment.

Thanks for the help.

Not often I can help a Gold Member! But yes, those warnings are USELESS in MS Office 2007!
