MS Access 97 Conversion

I have several Access 97' applications I would like to convert to
Access 2000. I would also like to create run time versions of some
applications with the Office 2000 Developer package (I have used the
97' Access Developer's Toolkit). I am running Windows 98 and would
like to stay with that OS if possible (or recommended). I have the
following questions:

1. Can Access 2000 be installed on a PC with Access 97 already
installed and have both fully functional?
2. Can Access 2000 save applications as Access 97 applications?
3. Any tips/advice about converting applications and use of the
developer package.

Thank you,

MPP

Yes. See http://www.trigeminal.com/usenet/usenet019.asp (and the Microsoft
KB articles to which he points) for details.
2. Can Access 2000 save applications as Access 97 applications?
Yes. Tools | Database Utilities | Convert Database. Note that if you use any
new features in Access 2000 that aren't in Access 97, you'll run into
problems.
3. Any tips/advice about converting applications and use of the
developer package.


Many people recommend using a 3rd party product such as SageKey
http://www.sagekey.com/ rather than the built-in PDW. You may want to check
out postings to microsoft.public.access.devtoolkits and/or
microsoft.public.access.developers.toolkitode for other suggestions.

Thanks for the advice Doug. Will the 2000 ODE create a runtime with
Access 97'? If it does then the SageKey and Wise software may be all
that I need in addition to 2000 ODE. Your thoughts?

No, Office 2000 Developer will not work with an application created in
Access 97.
