When you try to convert an Access 97 database to Access 2002, you may receive the following error message
followed by a second message:
An error occurred while loading Form_FormName. Do you want to continue.
The Visual Basic for Applications project in the database is corrupt.
You receive these error messages when the database that you are trying to convert is not in a compiled state, or if there was corruption in the database before you tried to convert it to Microsoft Access 2002.
To work around this behavior, use one of the following methods.
Method 1: Compact in Access 97
Method 2: Import the Objects Directly
Method 3: Remove References to Utility.mda
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
