Transfer Data Between Versions of Access

Say goodbye to version incompatibility issues.

Microsoft has released more than half a dozen versions of Access over the years. Some people and organizations buy into each upgrade, some skip around, and some hold on for dear life to the one they have been using since the previous century! The version doesn’t matter when you or your organization work in a vacuum, but when you exchange data with external companies, version incompatibility can rear its ugly head.

Let’s say you have Access 2003 and you send a database filled with your orders to a vendor. The vendor has Access 95. Uh-oh! The vendor can’t open your database.

One of the recent data technologies initiated throughout the computing world is the use of XML and other platform-neutral protocols. This purportedly removes data incompatibility. XML is nice, but only the most recent versions of Access can read XML.
