Default Access97 local forms in Access 2000/2002

Is there a good replacement for the use of local forms in an Access database? We have a large A97 replicated database application that we are trying to update. We use local forms for data output. Since these are no longer available we are looking for a workaround.

many thanks

What do you mean by "local forms?"

In a replicated database yuo could have local forms - controlled by the user of the replicated database and replicated forms - controlled by the design master of the database. So output from an action could be written to a local form for the user without modifying the copies held by the replicas for other users.
