Book VII
Chapter 1
Converting Databases
Access 2013 uses the same file format as Access 2007 and Access 2010 for
storing its databases, but previous versions of Access use a different format.
Book I, Chapter 2 describes how to choose among older file formats. It also
describes what happens when you open older Access databases in Access
2013.
You can tell what version a database is by opening it in Access and looking
at the title bar. The title bar may display (Access 2000 file format)
or (Access 2002-2003 file format) for an old format, or nothing or
(Access 2007 - 2013) for the new format.
To convert a database from an older file format to the Access
2013/2010/2007 format, follow these steps:
1. Open the database.
2. Close any open objects.
3. Click the File tab of the Ribbon to enter Backstage View, and choose
Save As.
