Help! Access 2003/XP

P: n/a
I have built an Access database using XP. My client just purchased a server
which is running MS Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition. They also
purchased a new computer with Office 2003 pre-loaded.

Are there any version conflicts between XP and 2003? Should I recommend
that my client "downgrade" to XP or will my existing database run without
any hitches on 2003?

Thank you!
Katie

There may always be something unexpected show up, especially if the new
version has newer patches than you have installed. The biggest thing that
will show up is a security warning asking whether or not to allow macros to
run. You will need to make sure that the user has installed Jet4 SP8,
available through Windows Update, and may need to lower the security level
in Access (Tools|Macro|Security).
