    The Office 2010s we now have don't include Access but we have Office 2003 which included it. Can I safely install just Access 2003 without disturbing Office 2010? If anyone has any hints, etc., feel free to send them my way. Thanks.

    I believe you can install both 2010 and 2003 on same PC. The only app this will not work for is Outlook. All other apps can coexist on the same PC. I have read that the older version should be installed first, then the newer version is installed. Check out this Google Search on the subject.

    So there is no way to install one component of Office 2003 (Access) without uninstalling Office 2010?

    I did not say that, I said from what I read generally the earlier version should be installed first, but try to uninstall the 2010 Outlook then install the 2003 Outlook and see what happens. The worst that can happen is you have to uninstall both and start over. Heck, even if you had to uninstall Office 2010, install Office 2003, thn reinstall Office 2010, the total time is not that bad, gotta be less than an hour. Go for it and try.

    If you run a custom install of Office 2003 and ONLY select Access and the necessary tools, you may get away without needing to do anything else. At worst, you may have to reinstall Office 2010 again. But this will in no way harm any users data or customisations that you have done to Office 2010.

    Thanks. My next step was going to be to find out how to save my customizations of the Office 2010 programs. Is there something I should copy of backup or will customizations for sure not be lost?

    If you are carefull enough just to install Access 2003 and nothing else, you shouldn't have any problems. I agree with Terry Farrel on that.
