Installing A97 and A2002

P: n/a
I currently have Office 97 installed on my PC. I need to be able to
develop aplications in both A97 and A2002 and am thus poised to
install Office XP. I have been told by many people that both versions
of Office can happily co-exist on my PC.

Question: Are there are "gotchas" that I should watch out for?

Yes: quite a few gotchas to be aware of.

The article discusses setup issues, conversion issues, and usability issues.

I have Access 97, Access 2000 and Access 2003 all running on my PC with XP
Professional operating system with no problems. So long as you install the
earlier version first they should be very few problems. Just be careful
about which version you use for each database you have, as the icon for the
files will all be the same and it may not be obvious which version of
Access was used to create the file.

I develop applications for both too. I put a97 on my wife's machine
for testing only.
For development you really only need axp - I just use AccessXP, and
conditionally change some of the code using compiler constants.
