You can, and I currently have Access 2010 (32-bit) on a computer with Access 2013.

Possibly.  There are a couple of points:

1. You can't mix different parts of Office (Access vs Excel) in from different editions (32 and 64 bit) within the same version.  So you can't have Access 32 bit and Excel 64 bit both within 2013.

2. A 32 bit DB will run under 64 bit Access as long as you use no 3rd party controls and no WIndows API calls.   The type of call is determined by the version running, not the DB.   So if running a DB that was developed in 32 bits in 64 bit Office 64, all calls will be made 64 bit (including ODBC calls).

3. If using a 32 bit DB under 64 bit Access, you cannot distribute as a .accde.

By the way, I assumed your question was about running a DB.  As Phillip said, you can have 2010 and 2013 on the same machine.

Just make sure your put them in different directories.

Jim.
