    I was doing a class book exercise using Access 2003. The book refers to some
    things such as "smart tags" that I can't find in Access 2003. Is Access 2003
    the same as Access XP? Other than Office 2007, what is the current version of
    Office / Access?

    Thank you.

    ACCESS 2003 is in Office 2003.

    ACCESS 2002 is in Office XP.

    ACCESS 2003 is the most current version that is "on the market".

    ACCESS 2007 will be in 2007 Office when it's released early next year.

    I'm not aware of any features in ACCESS 2002 that are not in ACCESS 2003.

    Access 2003 is the version of Access included in Office 2003, it is the
    current version of Access, it is not the same as Access XP, and it does
    include Smart Tag support.

    (Strictly speaking, there is no such thing as 'Access XP'. The individual
    applications included in Office XP did not use the 'XP' designation, they
    were known as 'Access 2002', 'Excel 2002', 'Word 2002', etc. But the terms
    'Access XP', 'Excel XP', 'Word XP', etc., while not strictly accurate, are
    widely used and generally understood.)

    To see Smart Tag support in Access 2003, open a table in design view and
    select one of the fields. In the lower left hand corner of the table design
    view a number of properties of the selected field will be listed. The last
    of them is 'Smart Tags'. Select that property and a builder button will be
    displayed to the right of the property text box. Click that builder button
    to see available Smart Tags.

    Thanks Ken, you confirmed what I thought. I had loaded the wrong version.

    Thanks Brenda,
    The "smart tag" thing makes sense. I had loaded the wrong version of Office.

    Nothing to do with Access, but did you once live in Columbus Ohio -
    James Rd?
