Convert A2K to A97

P: n/a
Probably a dumb question but...

Is there anyway to convert an Access 2000 db to Access97 without having
Access2000? I downloaded a few of the sample databases from the Microsoft
site but they are designed for A2K and I don't have it. And I really don't
want it either.

But if the person has A97 but nothing newer in the Access versions? Can
he use those files from MS samples in 2000+ versions.

If only there were a converter. No. Especially if you don't want to
buy an new version.

I don't know of ANY software that's forward-compatible.
The OP best ask a friend with the right version of Access if he's to
*** to get the current version.
A97 is about to be 10 years old. I don't care if you think it's the
greatest version ever: someday you'll be left behind, just like a/o
those clinging on to PowerBuilder and Lotus Approach.

Like I said, probably a dumb question 'cause I was pretty sure of the
answer. I went ahead and ordered the 2003 upgrade from microsoft last night.
At $109 thats not a bad deal. Besides, I'd say I got my moneys worth out of
A97!

Don't throw away your A97, Jimmy.
It's a matter of personal choice, but if you're doing something that
doesn't involve any changed features in the later version, you may prefer
to work in 97 then convert the result to the later version.

You may be perfectly happy working in A2003, but if you keep A97, then you
still have the choice.

Cheers,
Alan
