    Upgrade from 2000 (2000)

    I am getting a new version of Access. I believe it is 2003. I have about 10 2000 databases that I maintain. Will the 2000 databases ask me to convert them? If so, will the people with 2000 still be able to open the databases? What trouble am I looking at getting into??

    No conversion is needed to use Access 2000 format databases in Access 2002 or 2003. Although there is a new Access 2002/2003 database format, it is best to stay with the Access 2000 format, since this can be used by all Access 2000, 2002 and 2003 users without conversion.
    One of the things to look out for is the increased security in Access 2003. Unless you sign your database with a digital certificate, users will get a warning every time they open the database (much like they get if they open a Word document or an Excel workbook with macros). See See Microsoft Office Assistance: Frequently asked questions about Access security warnings.
