How do I use Commander or Commander Remote with Access 2000 or 2002?

Submitted byglx25v onFri, 08/17/2018 - 17:29


Commander Version 4.2.17 (Commander Remote 1.0.21) now recognizes Access 97, 2000 and 2002 files. This allows direct manipulation with any of these versions of Access. Commander is shipped with Access 97 files as default. Copies of the files in the various versions are located in the “Commander 4.2\Access Versions” folder. Sub folders for 97, 2000 and 2002 are included. These blank files can be copied into the appropriate locations. You can also use the conversion utility included with Access.

Previous versions of Commander could only be used with Access 97 files.

Files included are listed below:
