Crystal Reports Access Database connection problem

Hi,

I recently upgraded Access from 2017 to 2016. But now CR cannot connect to *.accdb files. What gives?

    Hi James,

    Crystal is a 32 bit application. Microsoft stopped developing a 32 bit driver with Access 2010. We've been lucky so far that the Acess 2010 runtime has worked to open Access 2016 but I haven't tested it with Access 2017 yet.

    If you haven't already done so, follow these steps.

    If that still doesn't work then there's not much else we can do.

    Good luck,

    Brian
