Will Access 2010 run databases and form applications created in Access 2013

thao-nhi used Ask the Experts™
I plan to upgrade to 2013 version of Access but concerned about the compatibility between the 2 versions. I do not want to run into a scenario where my databases and form will not work in 2010.  I plan to use 2013 at home and at work I have 2010.

It seems that unless you use Access 2013 specific features 2010 will still open the database but it seems a gamble to me. The best answer is to continue using Access 2010 in both cases.
