Will Access 2002 Save As Access 97 ??

P: n/a
I use Access 97, but have a database that was created in A2000

A computer at work has Access 2002 so should read the 2000 file

Does Access 2002 allow you to save a file in the 97 format?

If not, I guess I'll have to write a quick report to write the
information as a text file and import into 97, but it would be
a lot faster if A02 included a "save as" feature

I've just checked with Access 2002 and that has the functionality to back
convert to 97 so it looks likely!!!
