I have a customer who is going to install Access 2013 desktop who has a number of apps some of which go back to Access 97.  So 3 questions.

Can I use/open mdb format (queries / forms / reports / code) with Access 2013 desktop?
I've read a number of places that you can link tables to the mdb format, but you can't open or convert a mdb with Access 2013.

Can I keep old version of Access with Access 2013 desktop?
I'm a programmer and have Access 2003 and Access 2010 (among other versions) installed on my machine.  Will Access 2013 leave the old version so they still work.  In the past an install asked if you wanted to keep the old versions.

Does Access 365 come when you buy  Access 2013 desktop?

Thanks in advance.
