Can Access 2010 and 2016 coexist in my tiny Lan.

Can Access 2010 and 2016 coexist in my tiny Lan.

Can Access 2010 and 2016 coexist in my tiny Lan.

I have Access 2010 on a main server and 6 stations. Using Windows 2010 ver 1809.

We bought 2 new machines. Put Office 365 on each.
Copied the Access 2010 accdb file onto one of the office 365 machines and it works fine.

If we linked the 2 new machines into our tiny 2010 server, will everything work fine??

Thanks for your ideas. Cimoli Glen

RE: Can Access 2010 and 2016 coexist in my tiny Lan.

I would expect it to work. The file format hasn't changed since 2007. The issue would be if you had code that used a feature that is new since 2010. If you use ACDE files you may have some trouble but likely not much if fully patch your 2010 machines. Do any development work on 2010 and you should be fine.
