[Solved] "Unrecognized database format" MS Access 2007 Win 7

Postby miasma.gajs » Wed May 06, 2015 11:30 pm

Have been using Base to run queries against an MS Access 2007 database (.accdb) on XP. Moving to Windows 7 Pro SP1 and having problems connecting to the accdb. I have read this thread and done everything there (I believe!) but still encounter the above error message.

This happens whether I try to connect using the original Base (.odb) or create a new odb.

Any help much appreciated.

Well, sometimes the easiest explanation is the simplest... I, or Bill Gates, had managed to corrupt the accdb. Fixed and all working now. Sorry for the red herring.
