Default Access is unable to open database window

I receive this error on a database that was created in Access 2003, but converted to Access 2000. The funny thing is, during the conversion process, I received another error stating "The form name ' DirDataCopy' is misspelled or refers to a form that doesn't exist." I don't know for sure, but I believe this form name is part of the conversion macro as written by Microsoft(??) I do know that I definitely don't have any form by this name, nor do I have any code calling this form.

I read several posts where MS has suggested importing all objects into a new database, but that did not solve the problem as many of the objects in the new database would not function.

Please help!!

Use your original file and move the objects from that, not from the converted file.

When you converted this file, it asked you to save it as a new file name so that you wouldn't mess up the original file. Use the origianl file to do your work from and get rid of this failed update file.
