    You will have to be more specific.
    What is this database going to be used for? How will they use the data?
    What MS Office software does the end user have on their PC? (If any)
    What software do they want to use to access the data?
    I ask these questions, since there are many applications and different ways
    through coding (using VB, VBA, VB .NET, Java, C#, etc. etc.) for accessing
    the data in the database that don't specifically require that they have
    Access.

    I work for a small-medium sized car dealership and have built a database in
    Access 2000 for a smaller division of the company. The manager of the
    division will be the user. I think the end user has office 2000 on his
    computer but the office computers have xp, so I guess for either 2000 or xp.
    (xp would probably be the ideal choice). I don't know what they want to use
    to access the data. I thought that you could just deploy it like in .NET as a
    windows application. Something like that would be ideal...I'm not sure that
    was the answer to your question though.

    You can purchase Visual Studio Tools for Office VSTO which will allow
    you to create a runtime which you can deploy onto multiple computers
    However that is available only for Office 2003.

    You might be able to find the Access 2000 specific version on Ebay
    although it's quite possible it's not very legal.

    You can get the developers version of access ( I don't recall the name
    of the current version ) and that will have an Access runtime program that
    you can legally use on any computer to work with the data in the files. It
    does not allow modification of the database design. Note: this version of
    Access is a wee bit more expensive than the standard version.
