I am currently using MS Access 2016 and I need to open a file that was created using MS Access 2000. When I try to open the file it will not let me do it, therefore I cannot convert it. I need help converting this file so I can open it utilizing MS Access 2016.

Open MS Access 2000 file in MS Access 2000 and then try to paste it in a new file in MS Access 2016. See if that works?

Now you can use Access 2016 to import the tables from old unsupported .mdb

Just check my article at EE : https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/33729/Importing-Tables-from-Older-Unsupported-Access-datab...
