Applying a program to different circumstances

Kathleen Atkins

Lounge member saleve volunteers for an NGO that has a really old computer system running XP and Access 2003.

He has Access 2010 and wonders how to adapt the database he’d created for the organization so it works with Access 2003.

The practical Loungers in the Databases forum explain why saleve should do his NGO-database building on the older version of Access.
