Thanks to everyone who contacted me privately. Here's my report back to
the list.
I received quite a number of suggestions for where to acquire Access
2007. The winner was Mike Starr's suggestion to buy a subscription from
Microsoft Technet. Voila! Instant access to mountains of Microsoft
software for noncommercial use.
Thanks to Mike & all other correspondents,
John

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 [2]john2 -at- allrednet -dot- com -dot-
Thanks, much!
