BDE and Access XP/2002

Anybody know how to still be able to use the BDE after installing Office XP
including Access XP?
Access Xp converts the current Access 97 database to a new format that is
seemingly not recognised by the BDE.

You have to switch from DBACCESS to ODBC.  The BDE native driver needs
the DAO 3.5 interface, which is no longer part of the latest MDAC
implementations. (You can download DAO 4.0 separately). The Access
2000 format is only fully supported via ADO.

Try KADAO.

Does installing Access XP automatically convert all the *.mdb to the new
format without asking?  If not they the older version of Jet should
still work with the BDE, as they are usually left behind.
