Microsoft Access 64-bit Compatibility Issue

Last Modified: 2020-01-19
I have legacy code that exports Access queries to excel and formats the output.  The database that was created on a 32-bit Windows operating system and is giving me major headaches on my new 64-bit system.  I've done research and most experts say that it's best to uninstall the 64-bit system, but that is not an option for me, as IT dictates what's installed on our computers.  So what I need to know how to rewrite the code to work with the new 64-bit system.  Thank you!
