A lower version of Access database can be run on a higher version Access program.
Access 97 can be run by Access 2000 or Access 2002/XP or Access 2003.

{Not necessarily.}
If the only Access program you will be using is Access 2003, you might as well convert it.
Upon conversion you still will have a copy of your old database.

capricorn1,

Does windows XP need to have Access 2003 installed in order to run Access 97 program? Is there a Access 2003 runtime or distribution component? We try not to install full Acccess 2003 version.

Thanks.

We have about 200 Access 97 program. Converting to Access 2003 is not an option at this point?

What components we need to distribute with Windows XP so that Acccess 97 programs can be run. We prefer not to install full Access 97 or Access 2003 versions on our PCs.

Thanks again.

A normal installation of Access 97 will run under windows XP.
But why not have a full installation? This won't require too much space.

Well. we do not want to give users the ability to create databases etc. I should be able to create a runtime version of Access 97 databases using access 2003, right? Can i also create runtime version of access 97 database using access 97 and deploy on windows XP? Does access 97 provides means to create runtime version?

Thanks.
