Erro opening Point XDRef Database:


Unrecognized database format 'X:\Projects\......\Cogo\XDRefs.mdb



so far no complications with the drawing or the database. I just want this error to go away or learn what it means and fix it.

It usually means the MDB file was opened, and saved, in a newer version of Access. LDT requires the MDB files to be in Access97 format. If you are not using XDRefs (not many did/do), just delete it and copy one from your Prototype folders. If you ARE using the XDRefs, you will need to open in the version it was saved in and resave as an Access97 file.
