Apologies for putting out a software issue. I've never spent much time in software forums, so I don't know to get to knowledgeable people quickly. I know, however, that there are some live folks here with some great resources.

I've got most of the development done for a client in MS Access 2010. I foolishly assumed (failed to investigate) that there would be no issues with my client's version. Thought they could get 2010, but only 2007 is available. Using the online compatibility charts for 2007 - 2010, I could guess what will work in the previous version. However, I would rather test for myself in 2007 or even take the development back to that version to ensure it works for the client.

Problem is, I'm having a heck of a time finding a version of Access 2007 for sale. Downloadable would be preferable. A physical copy would be okay for overnight delivery. Online sites I find through searches all take me back to Microsoft's site, where they land on Access 2010 pages. Microsoft doesn't don't offer any software prior to version 2010. At least, not publicly. I'm about to place an order that looks promising through evaluesoftware.com. But, they say they're pulling from Microsoft's site, so it may end up being a 2010 version, after all.

Can anyone point me to someone, or to a web site where I could buy Access 2007 and get it quickly? I'm in a bind.

To avoid testing some members' patience with OT discussions, you're welcome to respond directly to me at john2 -at- allrednet -dot- com -dot-
Thanks, much!
