    Using XP database in 2000 (2002/2000)

    I have XP (where I created the database and report) at home but 2000 at the office. I want to print the report I've been bugging everybody about on the office laser instead of my home inkjet, but I'm worried about what's going to happen when I email my XP database to the office and try to run/print it from 2000.

    Any ideas?

    Hi again,
    You should be allright as long as you didn't choose to use the 2002 format - 2000 format is the default - for your database. And you can always convert back to 2000 format if you did start with 2002. If you encounter trouble, post back in this thread.

    This sounds good. I haven't changed any defaults, so if it's defaulting to 2000, looks like I'm in good shape. I'll know more tomorrow when I try to do this from the office!

    Thanx again, Wendell.
