    For such step usually you just have to save your file to a newer version, and after you need to validate if your database still work ok.

    Does the .MDB came from an earlier version ? like '97 ? If so, in your 2010 make sure to save it as a correct file format, and after in the newer version of Access save it to a .accdb's file.

    I would check such blog (Converting Microsoft® Access Databases or "Cannot Open a database created with a previous version of your application" in Access 2013 and Access 2016) in example for information.
