Access97 & Access2K

P: n/a
Hi & TIA. I have a client that has A97 & A2K setup on their machine. They
have 97 set as the default version to open when they open an mdb file. The
app I built is an A2K version. Is there a procedure I can use, so that if
they open my database it will open A2K vice the default 97 they have setup?
Thanks for your time!

Just make a shortcut that opens the appropiated msaccess.exe and put
as a parameter the path to the db.
eg.
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 2003\OFFICE11\MSACCESS.EXE"
C:\test.mdb
In windows XP for instance you can rightclick in the file explorer and
create a new shortcut, the wizard asks you to what the shortcut should
be linked to. You type something like above example, offcourse with
your parameters.
