Access 2003 viewer

I have a user without Access installed.  They need to view an Access 2003 databse.  Not sure what to do and I don't want to install Access.

The Snapshot Viewer enables you to view a report snapshot without having the standard or run-time versions of Microsoft Access 97 through Access 2007.

If you mean they need to work with and interact with the database (i.e. open forms, enter data, etc etc) then they'll need at least Access Runtime. The 2007 version is free, but it's not guaranteed to work correctly with earlier versions. That said, if this is a basic db with no Activex controls you'll probably be okay running it in the 07 runtime; only time and testing will bear that out, however.

Turns out they needed to open snapshot files.  The download link you provided was able to open these and satifiy  what needed to get done.

Does anyone know if you can develop a database in Access 2003 and put the finished database on a computer that has Access 2007 Run-Time?  What needs to be done?

You'll get a lot more input by posting a new question in the Access zones.
