    versions of DAO (2000)

    Hi,

    Can someone please tell me which version of DAO is installed with office 2000? I'm suspecting it's 3.6 but I'm struggling to find definitive confirmation of this.

    Thanks in advance,

    Yep, it's DAO 3.6. This version is used in Access 2000, 2002 and 2003. Access 97 used DAO 3.5.

    One place to look for these things, although it's not always helpful, is in the References dialog off the Tools menu of the VB Editor for any Office application. Of course, now that I look at it, I see "Microsoft DAO 3.6 Object Library", "Microsoft DAO 3.51 Object Library", and "Microsoft DAO 2/5/3.5 Compatibility Library". <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    In addition to other suggestions, for Office 2K you can also look in the C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedDAO folder where you will find the DAO .DLL files, then right click file & open Properties to see version number, description, etc. For example, DAO360.DLL is Version 3.60.8618.0, "Microsoft DAO 3.6 Object Library". Some of other files in folder, such as DAO350.DLL and Dao2535.tlb (Microsoft DAO 2.5/3.5 Compatibility Library) are provided for backwards-compatibility only - you cannot set a reference to more than one version of DAO in same project, though as noted you'll see the various versions listed in References dialog. It is recommended that you use the most recent, which is DAO 3.6.

    Thanks to you all.

    The problem was that installation of a new product on our corporate network removed DAO3.5 and a legacy product broke which was using that version.

    We were wondering if it was safe to recompile the legacy app against 3.6, seeing as all our users have Office 2000 or above.

    Based on your feedback and other sources, we decided that it was safe to do so.

    Many thanks,
