    2002 software specs/compatability/license (Access 2002)

    I bought and read parts of Helen Feddema's Access 2002 In-Out book. Access 2002 looks like it's worth upgrading to just for the pivot table functionality alone. However, there are a few questions that I would like answers mainly because the only thing in XP I'm interested in is Access and not the suite.
    1. Which version comes with RunTime? Standard/Pro/Developer? (I don't want to buy the whole XP suite)
    2. Is it a subscription or a license? (i.e can I install it on a desktop & laptop)
    3. Can Access 2000 retrieve tables and queries from an Access 2002 mde and mdb?

    Many Thanks in Advance

    Question 1: You will have to purchase the Developer's Edition to get the Runtime ablity. You used to be able to purchase the Develper Tools Add-On but that is no longer available seperately. The Developers Edition will incude the whole suite. You have no other choice. You could choose to install Access only ........

    Question 2: According to Microsoft, you can legally install Office on your DeskTop and a Laptop .... if the Laptop is for your exclusive use.

    Question 3: As long as you set Access 2002 to save as 2000 format, you should not have any problems working with files form either version. Unless you use a feature that is exclusive to Access 2002.
