converting first to Access97? When I first time tried to migrate one of
my Access2000, PgAdmin didn't successfully migrate it. So I usually
convert it to Access97.

Well, you know that sometimes when you asking question to someone then
the answer comes to our mind? It happened to me now. I figured out that
the database I tried to migrate has AutoExec macro which run
automatically a form. I drop the AutoExec, and successfully migrate it
to PostgreSQL.

However, I have two Access DB which has this AutoExec stuff, and I
still have a problem with the other one. At this point I confused. I
took the same step with the previous one but it still can't be migrated
to PostgreSQL.
