Access Dbase will not open on various machines after opening in Office 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    New to this region but here it is;

    A client has an access database which manages the member area of the organisation and needs to be updated almost daily.

    Recently they installed several new Win 10 64 bit machines, with Office 365 and 2 of the machines got Access on them as part of that. Originally the dbase ran on a Win 7 machine with no problems.

    Last Friday the dbase failed to open with the following: "The database cannot be opened because the VBA project contained in it cannot be read...".

    The problem is that the database represents over 40 years of work and I'm unable to find a really recent backup cyber little bit unsure about what to do. A couple of options have been to open it and remove the VBA project but what will be the result of that in terms of usability of the database?

    Thank you for your assistance

    Lets get it right
