Access 20003 and 2003 compatability

P: n/a
If the front end of a database is in Access 2002 or 2003, can the backend be in
Access 2000 or does the backend have to be converted to a later version?

The back end can be Access 2000, or even Access 97.

You can develop in Access 2003, for A2002 users. If you use the A2000 file
format, you can use A2003 to develop for A2000 users. However, it is a good
idea to do the final compile using the lowest version your users will have.

You cannot create an Access 2000 MDE from Access 2002 or 2003.
If you create an MDE using A2003, you will not be able to install it using
the runtime version of A2002.
