Chapter 1. Access 2002 for Access 97 and... > Welcome to Another Access Upgrade

Welcome to Another Access Upgrade

Every two years or so, Microsoft delivers an upgrade to its Office productivity application suite. Access users and developers alike are accustomed to a roller-coaster ride of alternating exceptional and uninspired releases. Access 2.0 and 97 received widespread praise for their new and improved features, performance, and stability. In contrast, Access 95 and 2000 were bereft of improvements sufficient for most individuals and organizations to justify the expenditure of time, effort, and license fees to upgrade.

Few developers upgraded production Access 97 applications to Access 2000. Most new Access 2000 users and developers continued to create applications based on conventional Jet databases, rather than adopt the more robust client/server model offered by the newly added Microsoft Data Engine (MSDE) and Access Data Projects (ADP). Developers shunned Web-based Data Access Pages (DAP), the other major new feature introduced in Access 2000, because of design-mode deficiencies and deployment restrictions.
