Chapter 36. Access Essentials > Choosing the Right File Format

Choosing the Right File Format

Access 2003 and Access 2002 share a common file format, making it easy to share database files between the two versions. If you expect that you will want to use your database with earlier versions of Access, however, you need to pay special attention to your file format options.

To guarantee backward compatibility with older versions, any new databases you create using Access 2003 or Access 2002 use the older Access 2000 format. This option ensures that your database will work properly in a large organization where some users are still running Access 2000. Using this format allows all Access 2000/2002/2003 users (with the correct permissions, of course) to modify the design and content of the database.
