COnversion question

P: n/a
Does anyone know if there are any problems that can occur when an office
suite is upgraded from 97 to XP? All that databases have been created using
97 and we are soon to move over to XP and I have heard from an "unreliable
source" that there may be complications with MDB files?????

Regardless of what version you are upgrading a db to, always make sure to
compile the project and test it thoroughly. I did not experience too many
problems, but it is possible that references can change or break causing
some of your code to fail, some object properties may no longer be available
etc. Beyond that, there is always a chance the conversion can fail - for any
program suite.
