I am create a project with OLE automation with MS office.  However, our client may use MSOffice97 or MSOffice2000 in chinese or English version.  Then what is the development environment that will provide the maximium backward compatibility?  should the development machine using the oldest version of office or latest version of office?
As I know, when creating the setup program, an *.olb(Object library) may include, then which version of *.olb should I included or not include those files?
Is the object library backward comp. with office product or the product backward comp. with the object library?

I had the same problem. When using Office2000 olb sometimes the application crashes (was in VBA Outlook), as it never happen with the Office97 olb.
The application was working fine with Office2000 too but with limitations of Office97.
