I just got a new laptop and need to get Access for it. I was wondering if anyone had tried 2007 yet. MS says it has 2007 "Most functionality in previous versions of Access is available in Office Access 2007, with some exceptions."
does anyone know what these "exeptions" are.
I have two very large dbs in 2003 with extensive code that I need to keep in 2003 format do you think it would it would be possible to work on a 2003 db in 2007 with out causing problems to users running in 2003?

This makes it sound as if 2007 has less functionality than 2003. If that's the case, I don't see why anything you do in 2007 would affect it's ability to function on 2003 as long as you save in the original format.

At a guess I would say that some functionality is removed but I believe more has been added. I wouldn't be confident that the databases would work under 2007. Even databases written in 2000 have problems when operating under 2003.

If at all possible I would try to get a licence for 2003 as you need to keep the databases in this format.
