Upgrading Microsoft Access 2007 to Access 2013 Best practice

Last Modified: 2016-02-11
In my company we are having an Microsoft Office 2007 installation. With a production Access 2007 database. This database is divided into a backend database with data-tables (linked Access 2007 tables) + a lot of ODBC linked tables to Oracle Tables + Linked Excel Sheets (Excel 2007). And there is an Access 2007 Front-end which is used by fairly thirty users. And in Addition a lot of vba-code offcourse.

Additional we are using a central workgroup information file (mdw).

What is the best practice for an upgrade to access 2013?

Will the front-end database could be upgraded to Access 2013 without upgrading the backend databases at first ?

I guess all users will need to have upgraded their Access to 2013 at the same time before accessing the upgraded frontend ?

What about vba code compability ?

What about the central workgroup information file (mdw). ?
