    File Format (Access 2003/SP 1)

    Are there many changes from Access 2000-Access 2002/2003 file format? I just recently got Office 2003 and I was running Access 2000. I see that it left my database in the 2000 file format. Am I better off converting to 2002? Any information would be appreciated.

    The general consensus is that you'd better stay with the Access 2000 format. It can be used by all Access 2000, 2002 and 2003 users, takes up less space than the Access 2002/2003 format and seems to be more stable. The only downside is that you cannot create an .mde file from an Access 2000 format database in Access 2002 or 2003, you can only do that from the 'native' format.

    Thanks for the information. That's kind of what I was thinking that I'd leave it in 2000 format. At this point I haven't made an .mde file as we have just 3-4 users and I'm green enough with Access that I'm not sure I'm ready for it.
