    Any nasty surprises? (Acc 97 sr2 on 95b)

    My little access database is used by 7 machines. 6 are W95b and 1 was W2000. All running Office 97 sr2.

    The backend was on a W95b machine. I previously found that some functions when run on the W2000 machine crashed the database, so I was able to build a tiny vb app to do what couldn't be done on that machine .(These things needed to be done by the user of this machine.)

    Head office IT have just replaced the 2000 machine with an NT one and have moved the backend to this machine. All still running O97.

    Are there any glaring problems I could run into if I do the compiling of the mde of the front end that is copied to all machines on the NT machine?

    I never had any problems running Access 97 or 2000, back or front end, on NT. But are they running NT Server or NT Workstations? There's a big difference between the two (as there is for W2000 server and workstation versions).

    Thanks for the input, the machine is running NT workstation.
