Different Access version problem

P: n/a
To solve the problem of incompatability between different versions of
acces like say 2k, 2k3 could you not have a backend that's 2k and front
ends that are 2k or 2k3? Would the 2k3 front end be able to link to a
2k backend?

Thank you.

A succinct, and generally correct, answer.

However, using different versions can cause corruption problems... the
problems seem to occur, or occur more often, when the Jet database engines
in the different machines are not at the same level. However, Access 2000,
2002, and 2003 all use Jet 4.0 and, if you make sure the Service Packs and
patches are all up-to-date (Office Update is a good way), that will be
beneficial. In any case, you should be sure to keep all copies of Access
up-to-date with Service Packs and patches.

See MVP Tony Toews' site,, for the
best collection I have found of information on performance and avoiding
corruption in the multiuser environment.
