Running Access 2000 on a PC with Access97

P: n/a
Is it possible to run an Access 2000 database on a PC with only Access97 installed?
I.e. Could you use a Access 2000 runtime ?

you can convert your DB from access 2000 to 97.

Tools -- DB Utility (not sure in english) ----Convert...
you you might wanna check the help on that to make sure that everything
will work in 97

One of our developers tried that - but the VBA wasn't compatible.
We didn't write the database, and so, didn't want to re-write it.

Yes, you can run Access 2000 runtime on the same computer as Access97.

There is information on the Microsoft site.
You will need to remove 97 from the computer, install 2000 runtime then
reinstall 97 into a different directory. I create a "Office 97" directory
during the install.

You will need to do the following before installing 97, rename msaccess.exe
and hatten.ttf

After installing 97, rename hatten.ttf to hatten.old then rename the
msaccess.exe, and hatten.ttf you changed before the installed 97.

One problem, Access 2000 will take over the .MDB mapping each time you use
it. You will need to point your short cuts to the version of access you wish
to use.
