Is anyone using Microsoft Access 64 bit successfully
Posted on 2013-10-31
This seems like an odd question, and I don't mean to be impertinent, but I seriously wonder - Is anyone using Microsoft Access (particularly 2013) successfully in 64 bit mode? I am an Access Developer so this is not a naive question.
If so, I'd like to know how and under what circumstances. In the past the general advice (from all respected sources it seems) was to avoid 64 bit Access and use 32 bit instead. I think a good portion of this had to do with problems when making API calls, but there may be other things too. If so, I wonder how significant the problems are. If they are not particularly significant, I am inclined to switch to Access 64 bit. I seldom make API calls though I can think of a couple of instances where I need to get a computer name or name of a user. I suppose, however, there are work-rounds.
Again, is anyone using 64 bit Access successfully and happy with it?
