2000 and 2003 on the same machine

P: n/a
Hi All

I am using MS Office 2003 Word, Excel, Outlook, Front Page,
Powerpoint, Visio. All except Access which I still use the 2000
version of.

I am now ready to install the 2003 version of Access but I wish to
keep my existing Access 2000 installed.
The problem is that on the installation routine there is no option
this time to keep the 2000 version.

I know that the 2003 version will open the 2000 databases but I still
have stuff that needs to be updated now and again.

Any advice gratefully received.

If you do a custom install it *will* allow you to keep existing.
Of course you'll install in separate folders.
You can edit A2000 databases in A2003 and then run them in A2000,
provided you keep the A2000 file format.
