Which version of Access is on the notebook?

Does your database have a front and back end, or is it a standalone mdb?

An mdb file will only work in Access. Explore MS Access Runtime. I think MS released a solution for running an mdb without Access installed.

You should be able to find a copy of office 2000 cheap, then install it in xp mode (need to be running Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate/Enterprise) on the windows 7 computer. Office 2000 does not work well on windows 7, esp. access.
