MS Access 2007 compatibility

I'm just getting around to installing FMD 7. The documentation says MS Access 2003 or higher. Is it safe to assume that Access 2007 will work? Better to be safe than sorry.

Thanks

If you want to be safe, use Access 2003. We have barely done any testing with Access 2007.

Thanks, Mark. The frustrating thing is...I ordered 2003 on 12-01-06, but they thought they were doing me a favor by shipping 2007 2 months later.

Mark,

Any thoughts/updates on people who've tested and/or used Access 2007 with FMD?

Thanks!

Yes, we have tested with Access 2007. It generally works, but there are some annoyances with requests to save some of the forms. We have a code fix in the works, but I don't have a date when it will be available. The good news is that it doesn't affect any data.

Stay tuned!
