Starting Access program

P: n/a
I have previously used Access versions 97, 2000, 2002, and now 2003.

I have written a program and wanted to send it to someone who only has
Access 2002.

I removed version 2003 and reinstalled 2002 but I can't see or open the
program (though when I go to "ADD/Remove Programs" in the control
panel, it is there.) There is no icon for it, it is not under "ALL
Programs" on startup menu and I can't start it via "Explorer".

Questions:

1. Can someone running Access 2002 uses aa Access 2003 program?

2. Any suggestions on how to get Access 2002 running again?

Thank you for the help in advance.

By default Access 2002 and 2003 still use the Access 2000 file format. Even if
you deviate from that the newer format is the same between 2002 and 2003 so as
long as you avoid functions/features that were introduced in 2003 you can just
develop in that and send your friend the file.
