    Access under XP

    Will I be able to install my old Access 97 with Office XP or Office 2000?

    It's always best to install the earlier version first, then install the later versions in order from earliest to latest. That keeps you from having a lot of problems untangling things. Just tell the new version NOT to remove the existing version and give it a unique folder of its own for each version of Office. There are a series of Knowledge Base articles that deal with this.

    I see a lot of references to "Knowledge Base Articles". What and where are they, please?

    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://search.support.microsoft.com/kb/c.asp>The MS Knowledge Base</A> is a searchable database of " technical support information and self-help tools for Microsoft products "

    They even have articles on how to search the database:
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q242/4/50.ASP>Q242450</A> , for example is titled How to Query the Microsoft Knowledge Base Using Keywords and covers W98 and ME searches.

    HTH.
