Access XP Reliability

How does Access 2002 fit in to the reliability lineup of Access
versions. Access 95 seemed to be fairly ordinary, Access 97 by all
accounts was their best effort yet and Access 2000 seems to have a few
nasty bugs.

Any opinions/help would be appreciated.

IMNSHO, it's no worse than '97. Both versions do 99.9% of their stuff OK,
but both versions have some "features" that you need to find a way of
working around.

Wayne, see:
Converting from Access 97
at:
http://members.iinet.net.au/~allenbrowne/ser-48.html

Particularly, the Usability part of the article highlights the issues you
must be aware of to get A2000 and later working reliably.

IME and subject to the limitations discussed in the article, A2003 is the
most reliable version of Access for developing in.

It alternated:
A1 crap
A2 good
A95 crap
A97 good
A2K crap
A2K2 good

Think I'll avoid A2K3 for as long as poss. :-)
