I converted the file format of my database to 2002-2003 format in order to create my MDE file. I am wanting to share this MDE file with 2 other users, but they are using Access version 2002. I was assuming that since the file format is 2002-2003 that 2002 users could use it, but they get an error. It says that the format is unorganized or something like that. My question is do I have to update them to Access 2003 in order to use the MDE file or should they be able to use it with Access 2002 and if so how can I make that work?
