I'm a seasoned developer in MS Access, and use VBA extensively when processing jobs. I'm really only looking for 'best practice' advice from my comrades here.
As you may be aware, MS has essentially pulled the rug out from under us Access Data Project (.adp) developers by no longer supporting (deprecating) it in their Office 2013 offering.
I've already switched several of my smaller .adp apps over to the ODBC format, but have one relatively HUGE program to migrate over from .adp to .mdb. This program has around 4500 lines of VBA code that's processing 100's of business rules, and is collectively pulling from ~2 dozen data sources, including tables, views, and sorted procs, some of which connect via Linked Servers.
My best guess at this point is to replicate this complex app as an .mdb, and attempt trying to connect all connections to it via ODBC, and possibly also/alternatively using pass-through queries.
Experts: guess what I'm asking here is this: given the above, what would you consider 'best practice' towards migrating the app from .adp to .mdb?
Thanks, in advance,
