Compatability of A2000 and A2003.

P: n/a
I have A97 and A2K on my computer at home, on which I do volunteer
work for several databases on our county park system. One of the
clients uses A97, and the rest, A2K.
The A97 user is considering upgrading their Microsoft Office.
If they upgrade to Office 2000, I have no problems; I'll convert their
A97 database and we'll be in business.
But what if they upgrade to Office 2003 (I think there is such
a thing) and install A2003. Will I be able to freely swap their A2003
database back and forth between their computer and mine? Or will my
A2K gag on their A2003 database?
Thanks. Pete Brady

An A2000 application will work just fine on A2003. You'll want to be
cautious that they keep it in A2000 format, however. If they convert it to
A2003, no one will be able to open it on A2000.

HTH,
