Two Versions of Access on same machine?

I currently have Access 2002 on my laptop. Can I install Access 2000 on the
same machine. Has anyone done this and are there any problems?

TIA

Yes, you can have both, but why do you need to?

Access 2002 can use the Access 2000 format natively, as well as its own. The
only reason to run both would be if you need to generate MDE files or
runtime installs.

If you go for both, do a custom install so you can specify a different
folder, and instruct Office Setup not to remove other versions. You may have
versioning problems with ActiveX controls.

I can think of one good reason - A2002 doesn't have some bugs that my
users have in 2000, so I'd like to be able to work around those in 2000
sometimes :-(

Bite your tongue, Pavel! You'll awaken the Access 2000 flamewarriors from
their rest and start the Access 2000 Flamewar all over again, if you aren't
careful.

Actually you can leave it default installation folders, 2002 will use
"\program files\microsoft office\office10" by default thereby not
overwriting any previous version.
