Entirely stable on Terminal Services with 40 users. No front/rear-end bloat. 2007 is less productive. Moving between objects, the cursor is always at top of screen instead of last item selected. Even with seach enabled, this involves much scrolling around. Program still bombs out if copying a formula on a form from one control to another, even in SP2. Re-writing user security in 2007 is a real pain.

Access 97 makes it easy to release it as an application for other users who don't have ACCESS.

I got my first look at Access with version 1.1, but didn't do any significant development until version 2.0. Access 95 made filtering much easier, hence the top rating. I still like the feature that I only found in version 2.0, though, it would tell you the query column generating the error. There have been many times since that I wished I still had that feature!
