Re: Office 97 and problems it may cause....
In reply to tcg550, Jan 3, 2013

Database problems can be related to the change in the way the operating system and Office changed the connections to the database files.  I get very tired of the message about "sidecars" if I try and use a shortcut to an old unconverted database.  I have to manually open each old data base from within the Access Program.  A design feature I could do without.  Also Win7 does not come with all the dll files that the older Office programs used.  If you search through MS Tech notes on their support site the warnings show up.  Especially Outlook.
