I was using Office 2007, but by my company's order, I had to downgrade to Office 2000 for compatibility issues. For whatever reason now, .mdb files aren't associated with Access. This just started happening. I can open Access and run the mdb that way using File > Open. I can also associate .mdb files with ANY other Office 2000 product except Access. I tried uninstalling then re-installing Office 2000, but still doesn't work. .docs still open in Word, .xls still open in Excel, etc...

How do I fix this?

Don't understand. What happens when you try to make the association?
