    Moving from Access 2010 to Access 2013

    My company is in the process of moving from 2010 to 2013, and I will be on the pilot team. Our IT folks' plan is to convert my laptop first, then my desktop.

    I have many Access databases with functionality ranging from simple queries to complex forms / reports / VBA. I've done some Google searches for known compatibility issues, and have not found much other than the removal of pivot tables and pivot forms.

    For the most part, the databases are only used by myself and my assistant. One database, however, is used by others outside my organization who will still be on 2010.

    Is there anything I need to be aware of that could cause issues? Somewhere I can research?

    Thank you!!!

    Are you talking about upgrading the databases, or just upgrading the version of Access you are using? If the later, I don't see any problem. If the former, your other users might not be able to use the database.

    Just upgrading the version of Access at this time. I don't plan to change the format of the databases.

    Thanks

    Nancy,

    Access 2013 sis not change much in the desktop database side.

    I have Access 2007 and 2010 databases that run fine with Access 2013.

    There were some features the were depreciated in 2013. If you used any of these then you will have to make changes. See: Discontinued features and modified functionality in Access 2013

    I would highly recommend testing with Access 2013. I would only test on a copy of the database front end and back end, not he live production databases.

    Be sure to make backups!
