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
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.
