I'm new to Win 7. On New Year's day, I installed MS Office Professional (2010) on my new Toshiba laptop, and I'm also new to that (used MSO 2000 for 10 years). I subsequently copied a bunch of databases created under MSO 2000 to the laptop. If I click on any .mdb database, it opens a white screen that says, "Other Files Exist. The selected locations do not contain pictures to preview, but other files exist. To view these files, on the View menu, click Show Pictures Only."

This is a database, not a "picture" file. If I right-click any .mdb file and select Open with, a box pops up with Microsoft Office 2010 in it; not Access, just Microsoft Office. But if I click OK, it brings up the same "pictures" thing again. I checked Default Programs, and MSO is listed as the default program to open it. . . but it doesn't work. I tried browsing to find MS Access, but can't find it. I CAN open the file by first opening Access, then Open and browse to the file. But why doesn't the association with MSO work and how can I force it to work?

BTW, old .xls and .doc files open fine with Excel and Word, and if I select "Open with", the specific program (Excel or Word) -- not "Microsoft Office 2010" is what shows up. Only having the problem with Access.
