Looks like MS has two possible solutions for you:

1. Install both 97 and 2000 on the same machine (continue to use 97 for work
2. Convert the databases back and forth between the two versions.

I have not tried either of these, but my instinct is that keeping 97 on your
home machine would be less risky than converting back and forth each time
you edit.

I need help from any Microsoft guru! I WAS planning to install Office 2000
on my home office computer. My new workplace has Office '97 on their
network with no current plans to upgrade in the near future. I'm employed
at a large medical facility currently undergoing cost cuts and was informed
that Office 2000 is an impossibility. Obviously a PC is out of the

I've created several custom '97 Access databases and Word projects at work,
editing them several times a week at home. What will happen to those
database or Word designs and content if I upgrade my home computer to
Office 2000; then edit back and forth using the two versions? Am I wreaking
havoc in doing this?

THE BIG QUESTION: Do I keep Office '97 at home until my workplace upgrades?
BTW I do love this new position, so leaving is out of the question for now.

Thank you in advance,
