I have a program that was created in the access 2.0 version and that works well to this day, being very useful for me. The problem is that it only works on the Win XP version. So I need to convert this program to a newer version of access, so that I can use it on a more current version of Windows. Can someone help me?

That will likely be @isladogs as he has all the old versions, or most of them at least on VMs.

You will need to first convert this mdb using Access 2003. Then you can convert from there to an accdb in a newer version of Access.

I was going to suggest @isladogs as a possible facilitator as well.

However, you'll also want to specify which version of Access you want to target as the "newer" version.

You've actually managed to confuse things by posting the same request in two places almost simultaneously. I've asked the administrators to clean up the threads to avoid further duplication.

Yes, the big problem is finding this version of Access 2003 on the internet, I can't find it at all.
Maybe in the version of ACCES 2007 or higher

I'm going to restrict replies to the other discussion where Colin (@isladogs) is already a participant.

This thread is essentially a duplicate of another thread in this DB, one that has already been resolved. I am going to close it per GPGeorge's suggestion.

@gbr1994 - you are new so aren't yet used to the way we do things. Opening two or more threads on the exact same topic not necessary and in fact is generally frowned upon. Don't worry, no penalty this time because you haven't had enough time with us to learn our ways - but down the road, opening multiple threads on a single topic when it is the same question both times? It is considered a bit rude and more than a bit impatient.

OOPS: TheDBGuy beat me to it - his notice popped up seconds before I posted this.
