Chapter 31. Migrating Access 9x Applicat... > Converting Secure Access 9x Files

Converting Secure Access 9x Files

Converting secure Access 2000 files is a complex process that requires advance planning. Multiuser networked applications are the most common environment for secure Access files. In this case, the issue is upgrading the shared data file(s) in back-end .mdbs, which contain only tables and, in some cases, queries. Converting client PCs with Access 9x front ends isn't a concern, because the front-end .mdbs connect transparently to Access 9x and Access 2000 back-end databases.

To upgrade either the front-end or back-end .mdb file(s), you must open the files exclusively under an account that has Modify Design or Administer permission for all objects in the .mdb file. Alternatively, you must be the owner (creator) of all of the database's objects. All users must close their front-end applications for you to obtain exclusive-open access to the back-end .mdb file.
