Office xp to Ofice 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just went from Office xp to Office 2013. I was able to open my Office xp database in Access . The opening screen in xp presented me with a form that would allow me to select whether I wanted to enter income. enter expenses, or create a report. Making a selection would open the form for that function. When I open the database in Access 2013 the individual forms (income, expense and report function properly but the opening form does not open the form for the chosen function.

  • If your database is any VBA code, you need to first create a trusted location for the database front end.  Then things should fall into place.

    Also, it would be a good idea to compile your code again to insure everything is coshure.

  • Hi John,

    From your description, I understand your issue is about using old version of Access database in Access 2013. So I'll move your thread to the dedicated MSDN forum for Access for better response:
