It seems so simple and you've done it many times before. You have a Microsoft Access ACCDB database (from Access 2007 or 2010) and want to save it (convert it) to a Microsoft Access MDB format database so it can be used by Access 2003 or earlier:
Unfortunately, when you try this in Microsoft Access 2007, sometimes this error message appears:
You cannot save this database in an earlier version format, because it uses features that require the current file format.
This could occur if you added new features of MS Access 2007/2010. For instance, tables with the new multi-value or attachment field types. In those cases, you wouldn't expect to convert the database to an MDB. So you check and verify that none of your tables have these field types and you still have this problem which doesn't explain what features you're using which require the new format.
It turns out this error can still occur even if you didn't add new ACCDB features. What's going on?
This problem occurs if the database was opened with Microsoft Access 2010. MS Access 2010 stores themes in an attachment field in the MsysResources table, and MDBs don't support attachment field types. So even though you didn't add this incompatible field type to your Access database, Access sees this table and field and and concludes the database can't be converted.
It wasn't easy figuring out the cause of the problem. Fortunately, the solution is fairly simple:
Note that if you're in Access 2010, you can simply save the ACCDB as an MDB because Access 2010 removes the table automatically in the conversion process.
I have SEND NOTIFICATIONS ticked on my Settings by why do I only receive notifications when a new thread is posted but not for any comment to it?
Wow, that is a very dangerous thing to teach users about. I wonder what other system tables they will drop just to see what happens.
This should be implemented in Access. As others say, VERY DANGEROUS!
