Converting Back to Access 97

P: n/a
This may seem hard to believe, but my company still develops in MS
Access 97... it's very frustrating, especially having used 2000 and
2004 and knowing how useful the updates are!

Anyway, whilst on a course recently I devloped some code in MS Access
2000 that I would like to use for a mdb at work. It is held on disk
in a 2000 mdb... I need to open it with 97, but I can't. And I don't
have access to a version of 2000. This is very frustrating, because
as a new developer, I can't recreate the code without at least having
a look at it.

Does anyone know of a way I can extract (even just print) the VBA from
the 2000 mdb with only version 97?

Thanks
Katie

There's no way to open an Access 2000 database with Access 97. You'll need
to find a machine with Access 2000, 2002, or 2003 and save as previous
version. BTW, there is no Access 2004 as yet, so you must have some really
great inside-Microsoft connections.
