Access 97 upgrade question

P: n/a
Hi,

I have a copy of Access 97 while my client uses Access 2000 which
supports Unicode. My client has ordered a copy of Access 2000 upgrade
for me, but the middleman, atomicpark.com is totally ABSURD, first
they delayed delivery and secondly when they sent the ordered product
they sent me a badly damaged CD, when I asked for replacement they did
not even bother to apologize instead telling me to contact them. I
don't ever ever want to deal that middleman sucker again. Now, the
question is, if we order a copy of Access 2002/2003 upgrade, would it
have the option of "Save as Access 2000" or "Export to Access 2000",
so that I can send a copy of a revised database on my machine to my
client if necessary, sort of like in Word, you can save the document
as Word 4/5 and so on?

Many thanks.

Access 2002 and Access 2003 can both create MDBs in Access 2000
format. You can use Access 2002 or Access 2003 to develop for users
using Access 2000 provided that a) you're careful to avoid using any
new features that were not supported in the earlier version and b) you
don't need to distribute MDEs. (You have to convert to Access
2002/2003 format to create an MDE in the later versions.)
