Access connection in TDA

HI, I am trying to setup an Access db (2007-2013) to TDA (3.8). I am getting this error: Please help.

Please post a screenshot of the error. Thanks!

I don’t think the screenshot came through. They don’t cut and paste well. Click through to the “Use rich formating” and them import the image.

For some reason it will not attache or keep a screen print. The error

I cannot even do that for some reason. Anyway the error states:

[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] cannot open database ‘(unknown)’ . It may not be a database that you application recognizes, or the file may be corrupt.

Can you open the file in Access without any issue?

I can open the Access database without any problems.

Is this Access file from a 64-bit Office Suite?

Yes it is.

We are a 32-bit application and cannot support 64-bit. We should be displaying a message so it is clear what is happening. I entered QAT-7924 to see what it will take to support it and inform the user.

There was a time when there were 32 bit and 64 bit downloads. Maybe that was Toad for Data Analysts. What happened? Is there any Toads that can support a 64 bit system?

I think this article explains the issue.
