Known issues in this update

Symptom Workaround
Applications that use the Microsoft Jet database along with the Microsoft Access 97 file format might start to fail. This occurs only if the database consists of more than 32 characters as its column names. Thus database simply displays the error message “Unrecognized Database Format”.

Try these sequential solutions-

Solution 1: Make sure the database contains all column names less than or equal to 32 characters.

Solution 2: Change the file format of the database to .accdb. For this, you should change the connection string too after conversion.

The same can be applied using Microsoft Access 2010 or later.

  1. Open the database which has the older file format using Microsoft Access.
  2. Once asked to convert, hit Yes then save this database with the .accdb file format.

Solution 3: Convert the database to a newer .mdb file format.

Note: This doesn’t require a change to the Connection string.

  1. Open the old database using Microsoft Access.
  2. Once prompted to convert, Click Yes and save the database with the .accdb file extension.
  3. Open the .accdb.
  4. Now using the File menu, click Save as an option and choose Access 2002-2003 Database.

Microsoft is working on a resolution and the same will be available by early February.
