    Reading 2002 files (2000)

    Is there anything a client can send me in Excel 2002 that I will not be able to see/deal with in Excel 2000? Will I have to install 2002 or can I get away with using my copy of 2000?

    Using a mix of XP (02), 2000 and 97, I have not found problems yet in the WB environment. Some VBA functionality is not backwards compatible from 2000 to 97. Also, Excel will suggest that older format files be recalced when you open them, and it will question you if you try to save older format files.
