    Access 2002 and 2003 use the exact same format for databases. You're
    fine.

    As far as I know, the formats for both of them haven't changed since Office
    97.

    However, since this newsgroup is only for questions about Access, you might
    be better off asking in the Excel and Word newsgroups (or a general Office
    one)
