When you try to convert a large Microsoft Access 2.0, 95, or 97 database (typically 4 megabytes (MB) and larger) to Microsoft Access 2000, the status bar displays the word "Converting," and then switches to the word "Ready." After a short time, the status bar changes to "Compact," "Saving," and finally, back to "Ready." You may or may not see an hourglass during the first period when the status bar displays "Ready."

Depending on the size of the database file, it may appear as though the conversion is complete and that Microsoft Access has stopped responding.

Although it may appear that Microsoft Access has stopped responding, the conversion is completed without any known problems, and the converted database files work correctly in Access 2000.
