Opening MSAccess MDB in Offiice 2016

Last Modified: 2017-11-07
I have an old MDB file that I need to access but get an error "The Microsoft Access database engine could not find the object 'Databases'. Make sure the object exists..." when I try to open it in Office 2016. I think the last time the file was saved it was in Office 2010.
