Problem while installing microsoft Access

i want installed microsoft access 2003 on a XP operating system but Office 2007 is already installed.
how i can create MSi package for this situation. so that after installing my application all other features of microsoft 2007 will remain as it is only access 2003 will get installed.
Do i need to uninstall Access 2007 from previously installed application?
if yes how ?

If you create, new msp file, which does not install Access 2007, and triger office 2007 installation on the top of existing office, it may uninstall access 2007 which is installed previously.[not 100% sure]. Then in normal way you can trigger installation for Access 2003

I don't think that's the case. I think you have to uninstall Access 2007 and then install Access 2003. Personally, I wouldn't advise doing that, as mix-and-match Office installations have proved to be problematic in the past.

Why do you need to remove Access 2007 and replace it with 2003 in the first place? Access is pretty good with backwards compatibility.
