Microsoft is working on a hotpatch for the problem that can come up when you run Office 2000/Access 2000 and Office XP on the same machine. They promise it should be out soon, and I'll post the information when I get it. It won't fix any already-corrupted databases, but it will prevent the problem from occurring again. <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>
