Unanswered: Forcing Access to open in a specific version
There has been an update in one of the Microsoft Access databases I use in work. It was originally developed in Microsoft Access 1997 and the newer version is in Microsoft Access 2000. I have set to default to open all databases by default in Microsoft Access 1997 to avoid conversion issues as there are alot of small specialized databases still used in Microsoft Access 1997.
Mainly there is one Microsoft Access 2000 database to be used by 3 members of a group. I am going to install both versions of Microsoft Access on their computers and just show them how to open the specific database in Microsoft Access 2000 to reduce complexity and the risks that come with conversion.
So mainly I am wondering is there anyway to get this new version of the Microsoft Access to force it to open in Microsoft 2000?
Also on an aside, can an MDE made in 2000 be viewed by computers with Microsoft Access? Or would it be feasible to install a Microsoft viewer to their computer so they could just look at it?
Download and Install Access Run Time Application 2007 instead of installing full version of access, it is free and It just run the app for user.
I don't know if access run time 2003 is available or not but both of them do the same for you.
