Hi all.

I've been asked to make some changes to a .adp file that was originally created in Access 2003. All the end users use the .ade file using Access 2010.

That being said, they no longer have Access 2003, they only have Access 2010. Can I make the changes they need in Access 2010 even though it was originally created in Access 2003? Or should I ask them to find a copy of Access 2003 so I can make the changes.

Again all their end users use the .ade file using Access 2010, but the .adp file was created using Access 2003.

Thank you in advance.

Yes, ADP support still exists in 2010.  However it was dropped for 2013:
