Hi,

I'm trying to access a shared bcm database with version 3 of bcm (Office

2K7). The 'server' is using an older version 2 of bcm (Office 2K3 +

updates).

I already can think of the answer (because it's not working) but I would

like my assumption to be confirmed (<-is this correct english?).

So...anybody who knows it exactly?

Thanks in advance and regards

Hans

No backward or forward compatibility.

Latter versions of BCM will upgrade older databases, but then the

older BCM clients can no longer use the upgraded database.

-Latter versions of BCM will upgrade older databases, but then the

-older BCM clients can no longer use the upgraded database.

This is the correct answer (you can upgrade a database to a new version). I

meant it is not possible to use different versions at the same time.
