"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The runtime version is whatever version you have on your computer at the time that you set it up.

I believe that if you have the current service releases and packs that you will have no problems.

And how you define Y2K compliant.  If you use a full 4 digit year, it will take and work with year.  If you use only a 2 digit year, Access, in general, will make dates 00 - 32, 2000 to 2032.  Any dates later than that are assumed to be 1933 - 1999.

I've posted the sources for the latest service release and packs at
