Converting Access 1.x and 2.0 Files to Access 95

If you elect to convert your earlier versions of Access application .mdb files to Access 95 and all of your users have not converted to Access 95, you need to maintain two versions of the application .mdb file. If the application is mature and does not require significant maintenance, temporarily supplying a 32-bit Access 97 version to users of Windows 95 and Windows NT 4.0, and a 16-bit Access 2.0 or earlier version to users of Windows 3.1+ is not likely to present a problem.

If you're in the development or early roll-out phase, however, consider completion of the application in Access 2.0. Make sure to observe the syntax rules for VBA 5.0 while writing your Access Basic code; doing so minimizes the trauma when converting your Access 2.0 application to Access 97.
