Compacting a BE with both 97 and 2K

P: n/a
I am accessing a backend database in Access97 (on a server) through front
ends in both A97 and A2K (on each machine). When the FE exits, it checks to
see if anyone is currently accessing the BE, and if not compacts the BE and
creates a backup.

The question: Will running the CompactDatabase method in A2K automatically
create an A2K backend, thereby rendering it unusable to A97?

The reason I ask is because I had to use one of the backups today but A97
users couldn't access it, while A2K users could.

Thanks,
Bryan
