    Re: Upgrade considerations

    Define upgrading, is this replace the computer it's self or just some components?

    How much are going to be able to spend on these upgrades?

    If it is the complete computer, I would wait til the end of the year when Windows XP will be out.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Re: Upgrade considerations

    can you swing an upgrade copy of office 2000 now? prices are good and you can get a free copy (S&H only) of office xp later. office 2000 has a lower upgrade price too -and is much better quality than office 97.

    on hardware, as long as you don't want top of the line, you can find some good quality machines at good prices and i expect the prices will continue dropping fopr the next few months.

    Re: Upgrade considerations

    I have several Access applications, so that makes the upgrade more expensive. Could I upgrade everything else, and keep the Office 97 version of Access?

    AFAIK, yes. You might want to ask in the access forums as well.

    Like Access 2000, the XP version is not compatable with the 97 format, so you really don't want the new versions even touching the db.

    Upgrade considerations (XP)

    I will be upgrading my hardware in the next few months, but the impact of $$$ is restricting my upgrading all of the software. Specifically, I will keep on using Office 97.

    What should I do with all of the SRP's and stuff that were issued? What about the famous Year 2000 issues? What should I install?
