Verision differences 97/2000/XP/2003

My wife is working on developing a small Access 97 application. While we
have newer versions of Access available, she's using 97 because that's what
was installed on the machine (Win 2000).

Are there significant improvements in the newer versions, especially with
respect to query wizards and form design/building to make it worthwhile to
switch versions while she develops this small application - which will be
used only by one person.

Is there a url anywhere that lists the differences between the different
Access releases?
TIA

If you are looking for differences in the newer versions that will make it
easier for her to develop the app I would say there are none. (my opinion
only of course).

You would need to go to MS web site and look at the "What's New" articles
for each version to see if any of them offer new features that would be
significant advantages to the app she is developing. The areas that you
are describing have not changed much.

I have a need to become familiar with SQL Server 2000 for work. Needless to say I am new to SQL Server any version, but not IT in general. My employer has provided me with the SQL Server 2000 Personal disk from the SQL Server 2000 Enterprise kit as this is reported here on the MSDN web site to be the version that is supported on Windows XP. In fact so many of you kind people confess to having succeeded in doing it. I have tried...

They hang up or kill the database. Our software developer says that these problems are in...

Does anyone know of any potential problems running a 2000 database with 2003?

Hi We need some advice: We are thinking of upgrading our Access database from Access 2000 to Access 2004. How stable is MS Office 2003? (particularly Access 2003). We are just a small company and this is a big decision for us(!) It's not just the money it's committing to an new version of Access!

Hi All, Our company is migrating from Windows NT to XP and in the process from Access 97 to Access 2003. Due to the phased rollout we are faced with a situation where some users are still on NT while others have been fully upgraded, but all users need to use the same Access databases. At first we tried just opening the Access 97 databases with XP but we were worried that some of the less computer-literate employees may click "yes" on...

Is there a document that lists the differences between IIS in Windows 2000 and IIS in Windows Server 2003?
