Access from xp to windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to carry over my access database files from my xp machine to a new machine wirh windows 10. The access files are extensive and important so I MUST be able to continue the files on the new windows 10 machine. Thus, can this be done; what must I do to accomplish this?

  • Will the version of Access you are using on XP install on Windows 10?  If so, it should be sufficient to install it and simply copy over your database files.

    If not, you will need to install a new version of Access.  Can the new version work with the old database?  If yes, see above.  If not, is there a tool for converting the old database to the format the new software requires?

    This is not an XP issue.  You can probably get better responses asking in a forum that deals with Access.  Be sure to tell them which version of Access you are currently using.
