MS Access 2013 conversion to MS access 2010

I have an application built in MS Access 2013 and I wish to convert it to MS access 2010.  Is this a possibility?  

How can it be accomplished ?

Technically there is no conversion required since the file format is the same for both versions.  However, if you have used specific A2013 features, you will not be able to open the app with A2010.

If you can't open the database in A2010 without getting errors, try rebuilding it.  Open A2010 and create a new empty database.  Import the objects from the A2013 database.  The import wizard will not import objects with specific A2013 features.  Then you can start from there and manually recreate the missing objects.

Here's a link to a thread that includes code to export/import objects if you want to do it that way.
