  • Hello,

    Yes, it is. What .net framework version did you choose in the wizard?

    wizard

    You can read more about this in the Running Solutions in Different Versions of Microsoft Office article in MSDN. It states:

    Solutions that were created by using Visual Studio 2013, Visual Studio 2013 or Visual Studio 2010 can run in Office 2013, Office 2010, or the 2007 Microsoft Office system. However, the solution can use only those features and APIs that are available in all three versions of Office.

  • Thank you. I didn't realizee, that changing the framework would give me these options. On a side note, is there no option to create an add in for microsoft access?
