Maintain an Access 2003 (.mdb) application with Access 2010

Hi,

I have got a large application developed in Access 2003 (mdb) and is distributed as a mde. Most of my clients are still using 2003. I am full aware that the mde can't be created by 2010, I have to do that on a PC with 2003.

Still I wonder, are there any large problems to maintain the mdb in Access 2010? I will not use the new features.

I have started to find my way around in the 2010 user interface, but still the developement is slower than in the 2003 but will be faster in the future.

Thanks in advance.

BR

My rule is to develop in the appropriate version to avoid any potential of conflict.  I have 2003 and 2007 running on one PC and 2010 running on my Windows 7 laptop, with 2007 running in XP virtual mode.
