Read Access 2003 files with Access 2007

If I install Office 2007 on a computer running Vista will I be able to read Access db files created on a machine running Office 2003 under XP?

Re: Read Access 2003 files with Access 2007

Yes, but you will need to covert those Access 2003 files in Access 2007 format. To convert an Access 2000 or Access 2002 - 2003 database (.mdb) to the Access 2007 file format (.accdb), you must first open the database in Access 2007 and then save it in the .accdb file format. To know how to do that, just go through these posts:
