I have an 97 access database which I want to simply add one field or column at the end. I have Access 2000 so I have to convert it to 2000 so I can edit it. However I thought it would be easy to add a column at the end, save it, then convert it back to 97. But it won&#039;t let me add the one column and it says record is too large. The help features of Access are terrible and I don&#039;t know how to add a column.<BR>I thought it said something about making a replica and having to get to the master design. I get a bit lost here, I made a replica, it said master design, added a column, but then it wouldn&#039;t let me convert it back to a 97 DB. Any ideas how to add a simple column to an already existing 97 DB using access 2000? They sure don&#039;t make it easy considering what I want to do couldn&#039;t be more simple.
