Hi Experts,
I have an Access database that I started in Access 2013 (installed on my laptop).  I then modified and in an Access 2010 install (on my desktop).  I saved it as an .accde file on my desktop and then sent the file to a client who is running Access 2013 on their machine.  When they try to open the .accde file, they get a message saying the file is a 32-bit file, and were not able to open the file.   \

I tried fixing the issue by opening the Access database in my laptop that has Access 2013 installed, then saving the file as .accde file.  I resent the newly saved .accde file to my client, but they still are not able to open the file because the file still shows it is a 32-bit file.  What am I doing wrong?  How can I fix this?  Please help.  

Thank you very much.
