    Hi Gloria,

    It will not be compatible to connect to Access 2016 in Crystal 11.

    Support for Microsoft Access 2016 is only with Crystal Reports Designer 2016 SP3.

    Regards,

    Vinit

    Hi Gloria,

    Access 2016 is probably 64 bit and Crystal 11 is 32 bit so they can't talk directly. Microsoft hasn't made a 32 bit driver for Access 2016. There is a solution though. You can download the 32 bit database driver for Office 10 or Office 13 and it will work. Have a look at this link here for detailed instructions.

    Thanks,
