    Difference between Access 97 and XP

    I currently run a forum as many of you might know. I currently am still using Access 97 for my DB. My site has really slowed down and was wondering if I could improve a little bit by converting the db to Access XP. What do you think? Any benefits?

    To be honest I don't know, but if there was a difference it probably would only be temporary. Is there any possibility of switching to MySQL? I assume SQL server is out of the price range

    Well, i donīt think so, or do you remember as single time where a new Office version was faster than the old one ?

    /me doesnīt

    But if you got the chance to test it, just do it...(backup your old db before converting... )
