    Access 2000 2003 (2000)

    We have started rolling out Office 2003 but most users remain at Office 2000 with Access 2000.

    In the last few weeks clients using Access 2000 have reported issues with Access 2000 such as memory errors when attempting to open databases or the inability to print when they are able to open databases.

    We are stumped although upgrading a few of these users appears to resolve these issues.

    Re: Access 2000 2003 (2000)

    Hello

    I started a database some 2 or 3 years ago, and whilst progressing through my tutored knowledge, came to a dead end.
    90% to my objective and suddenly ceased !!
    I watched Access's progression, and thought, this thing moves quicker than Beep Beep - Roadrunner !!

    I asked a friend , how to make an Access database so stable for all users ! and he came back with the most common sense answer.

    "Easy, mirror all users "

    Access is good, but when different users use different platforms, ie 97, 2000, XP, 2003, then differences will occur.

    Sorry if I put a blank to your problem, but experience tells me, the diverse platforms cause different complications.

    If you've had success upgrading your problem users, then that may be the answer !

    All users are XP Pro and all users in this department are Office 2000 SP3

    Other departments have migrated to Office 2003 but not this group.

    I can't say that we've seen this kind of problem with Access 2000 - especially if it's been kept current with the service releases. We have however seen problems when trying to run Access 97 databases with 2000. You cannot run 2002/2003 format databases with Access 2000, so I'm not sure why you would be seeing memory errors. As to printer problems, 2002/2003 do handle printing issues better, especially if you are trying to use something other than the default printer. Finally, if you are using extensive VBA and/or Automation, library and add-in databases and the like, then you can expect to see problems in a mixed environment. You might also find <!mskb=300216>Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 300216<!/mskb> of interest - it describes a number of things you can do to keep an Access 2000 database in good working order. It also shows a link to a 2002 version.
