Hi,Mike,thank you very much for your reply,Yeah,I am still suffering on the problem,I install 2007 trial version,below step for your reference,Here I appreciate your help in advanced .. By the way,Your link can not open it .. If you have annother link ? Thank you

 

1) File culumn > open database > (get target of my database file of ACT 5.0.3 ) apeared panel "welcome to database conversion wizard" > I clike "next" > Apeared panel " Database Conversion " I choose " standard conversion " then start copy database > Apeared panel for enter my user name and pass word > Panel " Specify target database " I enter target database name " Enter " "Next" > Running Database Conversion .. Then below is the result :

 

2)

onversion summary:

the datebase conversion terminated of an error.

Detail...

Supplemental files,such as layout ang letter templates,used in a

previous version of ACT! must be converted for use with ACT!2007. if you have custom fields in your converted database you want to conver your layouts or creat new ones in order to view them. Do you want to conver supplemental files now or conver them later!  

Updating database...

The picklist is missing for the field 'Home Postcode'. It will be populated with default data.

From what you reported, you have a corrupted ACT! 2000 database. At this point you need to consider database repair.

Re: If can I open act 2000 5.0.3 version by upgrade version ?

The database is actually about 25 files of which the DBF file is only one of the files. Your description of the error message makes me doubt that it can be repaired without sending it to a repair facility.
