Ticket No. 1501418147 re Access

Copper Contributor

I have an Access database that I created under an older version of Access and on an older 32 bit system computer.  When I attempt to open my database file on my new 64 bit system computer, I receive an error message indicating that the file cannot be opened because it was created on a 32 bit system. I am a paid subscriber to Office 365.  


I want to upgrade the database file to a current version of Access, and I want to open the database file on my new 64 bit system computer.  Your assistance is greatly appreciated.  Robert Chiaravalli

Do you know VBA?

@roberthrstrategybiz In order to run APIs under 64 bit Access, you need to adjust the Declarations for them. 


Here are two references that will help you work through that process.
