A reminder and heads up from the Access Dev Team. Access 2007, along with the other Office 2007 parts will no longer be supported. The Access standalone components are included in this end of cycle, so if you need, or want to have them for possible use in the future, now will be a good time to download them. Because we saw this question a few times after products reached the end of cycle, Microsoft ending the support for Office 2007 it does not mean it's an abandonware, just not-supported-ware.

As I’m sure you are all aware, Office 2007 is approaching end of extended support.

This is a heads up that the following Access components that are available as standalone downloads only, share the same lifecycle:

Access 2007 runtime - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/de...ls.aspx?id=4438
Office Data Connectivity Components (aka ACE) - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/de...e190a24fa6=True
ADE - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/de...s.aspx?id=24569 (includes the packaging wizard, source code control, and the save as template functionality)

Along with other Office 2007 products, their support will end soon and they will not be available to download anymore.

When I said the program was fool proof, I hadn’t realized there were so many fools.

Are further version of Access (2013, 2016) still supported or does this mean the end of support of everything .accdb?

No. As the notice says quite clearly, it applies to Office 2007. All newer versions remain the same.

Moreover, I'm puzzled as to how we could leap from OFFICE 2007 is going out of support to the total end of Access all by itself? Maybe I'm overreacting a bit, but this is why we see so many false rumors get started and spread about Access.

Just a heads up that all the links are now dead. crazy.gif dazed.gif

I'll never understand why Microsoft goes so much out of their way to make old versions disappear! Service Packs, Knowledge Base articles, so much valuable information continuously lost.
