access 97 backend with 2000, 2002, and 2003 front ends
Is this possible to have the 97 users with 97 front end, 2000 users
with 2000 front end, 2002 users with 2002 front end, and 2003 users
with 2003 front end all linked up to an access 97 backend?
We are currently planning on upgrading workstations with either 2000,
2002, 2003. the criteria for the specific version will depend on the
IT department. I would like to know if we have several different
office versions will it work to have access 97 as a back end??
thanks in advance

I have a chart which should get a title. However, this should be partly be

"counted with 5%"
5% should be taken from the cell and used in the title.
Is this possible?
Yes it's possible but all of the chart title needs to be in the cell. So you
may need to use a helper cell and concatenate text and value.

Each time i try to enter a number range, for example, 8-

ALL auto-formatting, but that's probably asking too
much. How do I disable this frustrating feature?
When you enter "8-10" in a cell, that's not strictly a number but Excel
thinks you mean a date so converts it as such.
A date is a number and in your example the number 38209 represents August 10
