    I just upgraded my computer from Win2k professional to XP Professional and
    Office from 2000 Small Business to Standard Edition 2003. I have an upgrade
    version of Access 2000. Do I have to buy the upgrade to Access 2003 as well?

    If Access 2000 is what you want to continue using, try to install it. If you
    can't install it as an upgrade to Standard Edition 2003, try putting the CD
    for your Office 2000 in the CD drive to see if it will recognize that and
    install. If not, I suspect you will need to get the upgrade to Access 2003.

    If you do install Access 2000, be sure to install all the Service Packs (I
    believe there are two) and all the Service Packs for Jet 4.0 (I believe
    there are eight). There's also a Service Pack for Access 2003, which may be
    included in the one you buy, but visit the Office Update Center (it's an
    option from Windows Update) to make sure you have all the patches.

    If the OP goes the Access 2003 Upgrade route, he should be aware that no
    version of Office 2003 seems to be a qualifying product for that upgrade.
    However, Office 2000 SBE is, so he should be sure to hold on to those SBE
    disks for "proof of eligibility" during installation (and any possible
    re-installations in future years).

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
