Hi,

This document https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffi...ption-in-office from Microsoft says "Although there are Office 2016 settings to change how encryption is performed, when you encrypt Open XML Format files (.docx, .xslx, .pptx, and so on) the default values — AES (Advanced Encryption Standard), 256-bit key length, SHA1, and CBC (cipher block chaining) — provide strong encryption and should be fine for most organizations. AES encryption is the strongest industry-standard algorithm that is available and was selected by the National Security Agency (NSA) to be used as the standard for the United States Government. AES encryption is supported on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2012."


Near the top of the document is does give the impression that this includes Access "Office 2016 contains settings that let you control the way that data is encrypted when you use Access 2016, Excel 2016, OneNote 2016, PowerPoint 2016, Project 2016, and Word 2016."


Can I deduce from this that the default the default encryption for Access 2016 accdb files is AES (Advanced Encryption Standard), 256-bit key length, SHA1, and CBC (cipher block chaining)?

If not does anyone no what it is - I have done a lot of searching but can't find anything more definite that the above for Access 2016.

Many thanks!
