Appendix B: Addressing Office 2003 Compatibility

Currently, the only issue with Microsoft Office 2003 compatibility is with Access 2003. The Access 2003 Conversion Toolkit is a set of tools and documentation designed to help organizations discover, evaluate, and convert their Access databases. This toolkit uses .xml files to store inventory information rather than the database the ACT uses.

The Access 2003 Conversion Toolkit records inventory information in .xml files that the Access 2003 Conversion Toolkit can easily import into the reporting tool later in the process. For more information, see “Access 2003 Conversion Toolkit” at

For more information on upgrading from earlier versions of Microsoft Office to Microsoft Office 2003, see the Office Deployment Guide.
