    Developer Tools (Xp/2003)

    I have the Office Professional XP Developer tools. As the Access file format is the same between XP and 2003, can I install and use the XP Developer tools to create a distributable disk for my 2003 Access project?
    I don't distribute databases all that often so I am loathe to update to the 2003 requirements.
    Thanks for your help.

    I haven't tried it, so I can't guarantee anything, but I don't see why it wouldn't work.

    as long as your database is in 2002 format it will work. If it isn't then goto Tools>Database Utilities>Convert database. The only issue is going to be if you have used functionality that didn't exist in the XP version of Access.
    Distribution in 2003 is a pain, but the next version (2007) will have the runtime and distribution tools available FREEE.
