    Hmmmmm

    Yes, quite a few enhancements.

    Thanks Hans

    I like the XML facility, could be quite useful.

    Has any-one any experience of converting from 2000 to XP, and have they had any problems in doing so.

    Dave,

    I have encountered some problems but they may be more related to the operating system (Windows 2000 to Windows XP) and Vb References then from Access 2000 to Access XP.

    I am currently converting some of my databases from Access 2000 to XP and will try to let you know how it goes.
    Regards,

    Gary

    You don't actually have to do any conversion, since the Access 2000 format is the default for Access 2002. There aren't really that many differences between the two except for a few relatively minor enhancements. Probably the dependency analyzer is the most useful enhancement to a developer. The improved XML support is nice but a nightmare security-wise. Everything else is largely cosmetic with a few nice additions along the way. All in all, the "improvements" in AXP aren't enough justification to upgrade to Office XP by themselves.
