I need some help here to get the newer version of MS Access 2007 to access the older version of Access 2003/XP database. The database was created using Access XP and is password protected. The problem is I am unable to get Access 2007 to connect to the database. I keep getting the "You do not have the necessary permission to..." error message when accessing the file. Does anyone knows how to join the workgroup under Access 2007 or another way to access the database? I'm the administrator, so I won't be contacting myself. Currently too pre-occupied on a production schedule to settle this problem and would be grateful for some assistance here. Thanks!
