Access 2000 VBA help file

Microsoft has the VBA help file for Excel 2000 which I was able to
download.
But I couldn't find one for Access. Any ideas?
The original laptop owner did not install these files and I could sure
use them. Well I only need the Access 2000 one now.
Thanks

Sometimes I think MS stopped writing Access help files after 97. You may
eventually find one, but good luck finding anything in them.
Sorry, had to complain. It was too easy.

The files are available on the install CD, which you will need to make
changes and patch updates to your Office 2000 install. The current Service
Pack for Office 2000 is SP3, which fixes some bad bugs in Access 2000. There
is a glitch in the install program when it comes to the help files, the
workaround is described here.

Hey Wayne,
So if I don't have the cd it's a no go?
I've had this laptop for a few years so...
Let me be a bit clearer. When I am in the Access VB Editor and I
click the Help file then I am prompted that it has not been installed.

The pack that seems to fix my problem is 'O2ksr1adl.exe'
http://support.microsoft.com/default...roduct=acc2000

Then there is a Note at the bottom of this page(#11) about two
installations
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;EN-US;258323

The site mentions two installations a 'flat copy' and 'administrative
installation' and I don't need the disk if it is a 'flat copy'.
Now the original user was a graduate student and it is very possible
that he installed Office from the school network server which they
made available as part of his graduate work.
Is there a way for me to tell?
Thanks again.
Al

Oh one more thing.
I have other help files like:
Ado210.chm
Dao360.chm
Jetdef40.chm
Jetsql40.chm
I've done a 'find files' on *.chm and *.hlp and nothing of use came up.

You don't need the Admin patch, that is to patch an network installation
point. Without the installation point available, whether network or CD, the
service packs will not install. If you want to be able to tell where the
software was installed from, you could try to do a repair (Help|Repair) and
see what location it mentions when it prompts you for the install files, but
since you don't have any installation point available this really doesn't
matter. If it was a network install and you had the CD available, you can
change the installation point to the CD.

Since you don't have the CD, the question becomes did the previous owner
transfer his rights to the software to you? If so, he should have given you
the CD and license paperwork, if not then what you have is probably an
illegal copy and this is one of the problems with illegal copies.

I have two clients now who want to have an Access 2000 & 2002 application running on NT Server 2000 do some file updating at night when nobody is in the office. I have used Windows scheduler to schedule the apps to start at 4:00 am, but at that time of night, nobody is logged on to the server. Is it possible to get Access to run on a server when nobody is logged on? Many thaks Mike Thomas

Hello, I have an Access 2000 database that I copied to a new computer with Access 2003. Access 2003 says the file is in Access 2000 file format.

Any ideas on why this happens? Mike G.

When I create a new db from the main Access window or thru Vb (set newdb = ...) I always end up with Access 2000 file format. I would like to get 2002 - 2003 file format. The reason is that when I try to link from a 2002 - 2003 db to a 2000 db, the Jet engine complains that it can't find the table in the target (2000) database. And no, I can't convert on the fly. Any suggestoins would be appreciated. ....Banba

Following on from an earlier post... I can reliably corrupt a record by doing the following ... Open two separate but identical front ends on one PC each linking to the same back end. Edit a records in one front end and leave it unsaved. Edit the same record in the other front end and save the change. Save the change in the first front end - this pops up the Write Conflict message to which I click Save.
