    Exporting to MS Access using DB Link

    Hello, I installed necessary drivers and DB Link gives me the option to _Select New Connection_ under MS Access 2007 tab.

    First problem: it seems it's looking for an .mdb file while it should be looking for an .accdb file. (Changing the option to have it look for _All files_ I manage to find my .accdb database I just created in MS Access)

    Second problem: the resulting database has a size of a few mb but it seems empty and MS Access wont let me do anything, like it never opened it.

    I'm using Revit 2018.3 and MS Access version 1912 also pc is x64.

    I would appreciate some help if anyone knows this topic. I need to export an MS Access database.

    Hi!

    Did you try to start Access first, and then open the database (via Open file)?
