Office 97 to Office 2000 upgrade but keep Access 97, if so how?

Post by U3RldmUgU » Thu, 05 Aug 2004 17:57:05


Currently we run Office 97 Pro in our organisation but need to upgrade to Office 2000. Unfortunately we have hundreds of Access 97 databases, so my question is:
Can we upgrade from Office 97 to Office 2000, uninstalling all Office 97 components except for Access 97 and installing all Office 2000 components except for Access 2000?

If so how can this be done without firstly removing Office 97 completely, then installing Office 2000 then finally installing Access 97

Many thanks

There's just one *** sy flaw with this - Office 2000 has been discontinued
for three years now - it was removed from sale when Office XP was released
which, in turn, was dropped when Office 2003 was.

If your systems cannot take Office 2003 you might be lucky and find a
retailer with some old stock of Office XP; but 2000?! Forget it.

Unless you already have the licences; in which case, why haven't you
deployed them before now...?

Hi Steve,

Yes, you can install Office 2000 and you can use a custom install
to remove all of Office 97 except Access97 if you choose not to
upgrade Access as well. You may want to start with the tools
and information in the Office 2000 Resource Kit for more information
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

Note that Office 97 uses a different installer/setup program than
Office 2000 and you may run into issues where the installer runs
a lot to 'switch' from Office 97 to Office 2000 being the 'current'
version that is used by the operating system.
