I have a company PC preloaded with:
- Win-2000 SP4
- Access/Excel 2002 (10.x) SP-2
I need to install MSDE, and I have the Office 2000 CD. The queostion is: would MSDE cause a regression in Access and Excel ?
I understand why MSDE is packaged together with Office. But I hope they do not use too many common resources (e.g. DLLs). Otherwise, isntalling MSDE 200 would throw Access/Excel back to the 2000 level.
Is MSDE really independent of the version of Office running on the same machine ?
