    Backward Compatability

    I have a question with this new feature in Access 2000. Has anybody had to use it. Does it work. We tried on a couple of our databases and had no success. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,

    Re: Backward Compatability

    Do you mean the ability to save an Access 2000 database to an Access 97 format? I've used it without any problems. However, you have to watch out for the references, since the default reference in Access 97 is DAO, while the default in 2000 is ADO. If you used ADO code, you'll have to be sure that the correct version of ADO is installed on the target machine and that you haven't used any features that didn't exist in 97.

    What kind of problems have you had?

    Charlotte,

    What about Access 2002? Will Access 2000 open it? Access 2002 says it's a new format...

    My understanding is that Access 2002 has TWO formats: an Access 2000 format that is supposed to be totally compatible with both Access 2000 AND Access 2002, and a new format which I know nothing at all about.
