    Access 2000 and Access 2003-- Fully compatible? (2003)

    I created a database in Access 2000 (Windows 2000) and have been upgraded to 2003 and XP. I have heard that there is a history of corruption of databases when 2000 is opened with 2003- even if there are no obvious problems for several months. When I open my database, I am warned 3 times about "unsafe expressions". Do I need to be concerned?
    Thanks in advance!

    The "unsafe expressions" are the result of the security "features" in 2003, not corruption. The corruption you have heard about isn't when a file is upgraded, it happens when a 2000 file is opened using 2003 and then 2000 can no longer open it.

    Thanks! What a relief! I hate hearing the word corruption and database in the same sentance!
    I will try that to get rid of the security "feature".
