    Convert a 97 database to 95? (Office 2000)

    I have access 2000 on my desktop, my colleague has 95, he has a 97 database that he needs to use on his machine. What, if possible, is the best way to convert it back to a version he can use. He is more interested in the data within the tables than any bells or whistles created.

    Thanks

    As far as I know, you can't. Access 2000 was the first version that including backwards conversion. You might be better off (assuming you have a developer's edition of Office 97) creating a runtime version and giving that to him. I never really worked with 95, so I can't remember if there was a table difference between the two versions. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Alternatively, you can export the tables to text files and let him import them into a 95 database.
