    Latest XP patch (832483/826939)

    After installing the updates above, an Access 2000 application failed when trying to use ADO connections. Any ideas? Do I need to apply office updates?

    The first one you list, Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-003: Buffer Overrun in MDAC Function Could Allow Code Execution (832483), does update database components and could create problems for your application.

    Rather than update Office, you might check with the application developer on whether it would make sense to update to the newest version of MDAC, or whether that would break the application.

    It may be that we should slide this thread over to the Access board, in case other heavy Access users are experiencing the same thing.
