Hi all, 

I am newbie here, and I am facing a following technical issues, could you please look at this.

some of my students working on  Access office365 (via browser) and I have office professional 2016 on my system. Problem is, I am unable to open students' access files on my system and an error pop up as shown ( attachment). even though, their files are .accdb, that's a new format. This is compatibility issues, but 365 is already newer version and if I click on help link, it will take me to link ( but that is not relevant to me). Backward Access compatibility issues. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/office/developer/office-2010/dn602608(v=office.14)?redirectedfrom=MSDN 

Remember, I have Office professional 2016 licensed version on my system ( win 8). Any idea, how to sort it out?
