What on earth did I do?

First of all, let me state that I am not a programmer. I simply have lots of time on my hands. That being said, let me describe things:

I wrote a small database program using Access 2000 for my wife to use at work. Nothing fancy, but I used button's, customized the drop down menu's, and made it a MDE file in order to reduce the posibility of her having problems by her doing something she shouldn't.

A month ago, I updated all the computers in her office to WinXP. Since then, all the summary information at the end of her printed reports come out in WingDings or some such unreadable font. Even worse, the change appears permanent. I copied her file to a Win98 machine and the same thing appears there.

Unfortunately, I no longer have the original file that I made up when I wrote the database.

Is there any way to "decompile" the mde file and save the information, or must I do it all over again?

To the best of my knowledge, you can not decompile or extract the objects from a MDE.

There isn't a way to decompile the mde file.

Unfortunately you will have to do it all over again.

Once you complete the database again...By all measures keep the original.
