Microsoft Access Version Support
Total Access Admin 2010
In addition to supporting all Access/Jet MDB databases from Access
2010, Total Access Admin 2010 also supports Access 2007-2010 ACCDB format
created by the 32 or 64 bit version of Access 2010. Support for this format requires Access 2007
or 2010 32 bit version to be installed on
Total Access Admin 2003, version 11.50
Total Access Admin 2003 supports all Microsoft Access/Jet MDB databases.
It does not support Access 2007-2010 ACCDB
databases. This version runs on almost all Windows
platforms since Jet is included and does not need
to have Access installed on that machine.
