Access 2007 won't Operate Access 2002 File

Posted: 10-27-2007, 10:47 PM
I transfereed all data on an older laptop to my new Vista laptop. Access
2007 can open an Access 2002 file that came from the older laptop, and all
tables, forms, queries, etc. look correct. All of the Switchboard events are
correctly identified (e.g., the report lanched when clicking on a button to
launch a report correctly identifies the correct report to launch.

However, for any Switchboard item in the Access application, Access 2007
gives an errror when clicking on the Switchboard button. Error msg: "The
expression On Click you entered as the even property setting produced the
following error: The expression you entered has a function name that
Microsoft Office Access cannot find. "

The error msg also states "The expression may not result in the name of a
macro, the name of a user-defined function, or [Event Procdure].

Anyone know why I get this error msg? Anyone know why this error even
occurs -- I have a fairly vanilla Access database that MS Office Access 2007
obviously converted correctly. Also, I can't possibly be the only one that
wants to run an Access database from a prior flavor of MS Access. So, if I
get the problem, why hasn't every other person now running Office Access 2007
from a database created from a prior version of Access get the exact same
problem.

You'll probably have better luck posting in a group that deals with Office
2007 or specifically Access. This group is for issues pertaining to the
installation of Vista.
