Problem w/ MS Access on Windows XP and higher than Office 97 apps
Posted on 2004-08-12
At work we have an Access DB (written in Access 3.0) that is on server and staff input lots of info about clients. It is fairly complex set up and works pretty well. I do not admin it, this one guy wrote it and takes care of it, but all he knows is Access, no more no less.
I have run into trouble with a few queries when it is installed on Windows XP. I works fine if all I install is the frontend part for this DB and Office 97. But if I install Outlook 2K or 2K3 or any office app higher than 97 then it starts messing up.
Doing anything to the DB is out of the question, how do I 'fix' newer versions of Office or Win Xp to make this not be a problem?
