Access 2000 upgrade to Access 2003

P: n/a
Hi There

I have a client, with whom I have done some work on their Access 2000
database. They have upgraded to Access 2003 and want to be able to use it
instead. Would there be any foreseeable problems with doing this? Is there
anything that I should watch out for?

If we do upgrade both the front and back ends, will all computers have to
run A2003 or can A2000 still access the data in the backend that's in A2003
format.

Any help with this question would be appreciated.

TIA

At least in Access 2002, (I'm pretty sure) it can open A2000 db's without
having to convert them. Maybe it's not necessary to convert?

Quoted from Microsoft:

"Use compatible file formats. Access 2003 uses Access 2000 as the default
file format for new databases. Because Access version 2002 and Access 2000
can use and modify the same database, organizations can roll out Access 2003
while maintaining capability with existing Access users and solutions."
