I hope this is not a stupid question guys but why does Access 2010 open a blank database with 2007?

The user universe of version 2010 is smaller than that of version 2007. This default of [current version - 1] is standard for MS Office versions.

You can change the default.

Thanks for the reply DeVandal.

I can only change the default 2007 downwards, why not upwards?

In effect, 2007 format IS 2010 format. In a limited sense, the primary difference between 2007 and 2010 are the design tools and GUI. There are more fundamental differences.

See Changes in Access 2010 for a more complete description.

2010 files can be opened in (by a user) in 2007. They cannot be (re)designed in 2007.

I have an Access 2000 database that I opened in Access 2010 saved in the default Access format on one PC and the calendar control I have in there (msocx whatever... the one that isn't supported in Access 2010) is still working after I saved it in the default format. (I went to File > Save and Publish and saved as default format). I then did this on another PC and the calendar control did not work.

How can this be? If I can force it somehow, that'd be ideal. It'd be a ton of work to change this control.

Any problems using Access 2007 database with Access 2010?
According to what I've read, Access 2010 uses the same database format as Access 2007. So this should mean I can open and run a 2007 database (with a lot of VBA code) in Access 2010 with no trouble, yes? So why do I have the feeling that something is not going to work? Is it because I have...
