Hello:

I am running a NT server (4.0) as a sort of hybrid workstation/server.  I am wondering if there will be any problems if I try to run MS Access 97 on it.

Thanks
Paul

Paul,

I have been running Access 97 on an NT machine for over a year and it has been working perfectly.

I also used on a couple of other machines also with NT. No unusual problems.

GBP,

We run Access 97 on our NT network.

We have quite a few databases, and all are quite large (we are moving to SQL soon). We have to compact the databases every night otherwise they become very cumbersome, and the IT department is inundated with slow database problems.

We were running the compacts and reapairs on a NT Workstation for quite some time, but now that the databases are so large, we have to run the compacts and repairs on the Access server.

We have experienced no problems at all doing this, and if anything, it all happens much quiker because of the raw power of the server doing all the work.

Hope this helps,
