Access MDE distribution question

P: n/a
Thanks Trevor for bringing this point up.
I would like to know If I have to buy another copy of access version 2000
for the users who cannot run acces 2002 mdes because the only have version
2000. I will buy version 2002 but I know it will not create 2002 mdes.
What is MS policy on this. Can I just borrow a friends version of 2000 to
regenerate the mde in the 2000 format an send off?

Thanks

AFAIK and I haven't checked recently, you can use your friend's copy of
2000 as long as you have a licence for 2002 and are not using that copy
of 2002 yourself. Otherwise you can save your MDB in 2000 format and
have your friend create the MDE for you.

But, occasionally, you can find inexpensive copies of Access 2000 at the
online auction sites, and that might be less trouble than having someone
else generate the .MDE.
