Yes you can use access 2.0 with Office '97. I'm using both Access 97 and Access 2.0 on the same machine. And I have users who have installed all of office 97. What exactly is your date problem on your subforms? Also - did you convert the 2.0 code to 97 or are you still running directly from access 2.0?

Thanks

1. Make a backup copy of the database you're going to convert, to keep until you're comfortable working with the Microsoft Access 97 database.

2. Close the database you're going to convert.
If the database is a multiuser database located on a server or in a shared folder, make sure that no one else has it open.

3. In Microsoft Access 97, point to Database Utilities on the Tools menu and then click Convert Database.

4. In the Database To Convert From dialog box, select the database you want to convert and then click Convert.

5. In the Convert Database Into dialog box, do one of the following:

Type a new name (without the .mdb extension) for the Microsoft Access 97 database file.

Select a different location for the Microsoft Access 97 database file. (You can keep the same name, or change it.)
