Details are crucial. 


  • What does "older access database" mean? An mdb from 2003? An mdb from 2000? Or an accdb from 2007 or 2010, etc.?
  • What does "new computer system" mean? A PC with Windows 10 or Windows 11? Does that include a newer version of Access as well? If so, which version?
  • And finally, what error is that? Of the top of my head, I estimate there are dozens of possible errors.... 

The more details you are able to provide, the better the chances are that someone will have enough information to start helping address the problem.

Thank you. We had someone to come in and help us. @George Hepworth
