    Hello everyone,

    Can I install an Access 2003 database (defaulted to 2000 format) onto a
    network server which has Access 2000?

    If it is a 'back-end' data-only MDB, containing only tables, or possibly
    tables and queries, you should be OK. If it is a 'front-end' application MDB
    containing forms, reports, modules etc., you are more likely to encounter
    problems, especially if you have used any new features that were not
    supported in the earlier version. Generally, it is best to keep such
    'front-end' application MDBs on the client PCs, and place only the
    'back-end' data MDBs on the server.

    If you have created in 2000 file format then you should be able to run under
    2000, however, be prepared for problems with reports as throws up some
    anomalies in my experience
