  • hello

    i have 2 defirent aplications on my network, each one of them need to be open with access
    1 in access 2002 and the other in 2003, the problem is that every time
    im getting the pre installation office screen(backround install, installing access)
    i tryied to change the path for both of the aplication(mdb file) and allsow
    to chose "open with" but with no secseed
    how can i tell each prog to use the right access???
    how can i force both of the prog to use there own access??
    thanks

    Re: hello

    OK -- you have Access 2002 and Access 2003 installed on the same PC?

    You need to open each .mdb file with the correct version of Access?

    Basically you create a shortcut with the application name (and path) plus the file name and path for the Access 2002 Application

    For example:
    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 2002\Access.exe" "D:\Data\My.mdb"

    The Access 2003 can be launched using a normal desktop shortcut


    Hope this helps

        Re: hello

        How about Right Click and OPEN WITH?

        Can you please post more details of file locations etc. (are you using drive letters or unc paths?)

        Have you considered virtual PC as multiple versions of Office on one PC often causes issues
