2014-05-24 19:17:34 +0200 answered a question x64 MS Office and LO

I discovered the answer to my original question after much experimenting. Starting with MS Office 2010? Access' native file had the ACCDB extension rather than the MDB extension. LibreOffice only works with the MDB extension. If I convert my database to the 2003 MDB format, then LO can connect to it.

2013-02-07 21:07:59 +0200 asked a question Connect Base to Access 2013 database

I just downloaded and installed LO4. I attempted to connect to one of my Access 2013 databases. However I get the error message:

The connection to the database could not be established. The connection could not be created. Maybe the necessary data provider is not installed.

What is the solution for this problem?

I have. When I do, I get the following message.

The connection to “LODBName” could not be established. The connection could not be created. May be the necessary data provided is not installed.

Is this a x32/x64 incompatibility issue or something else.

Does LO 3.5.2 base attach to Outlook or Access files when Office x64 is loaded?

2012-04-24 21:18:01 +0200 asked a question Base Memo field with RTF

Is there any intention of adding RTF as a Category to your Base Memo field like there is in MS Access? I use Access a lot and have about 30,000 memo records which include a lot of character formatting (italics, bold, underlining, etc.). I have considered moving to LibreOffice, but have not because I can find no way to preserve this character formatting.
