    Office 2013 and BCM

    Hi everyone

    just wondering if anyone has been able to get this working or it might just be the case that its not possible.

    We run a Shared database for BCM 2010 off a server and until now all clients have been windows 7, office 2010 with BCM 2010 but we have just recently gone with windows 8 and office 2013 but the database is built on outlook 2010. Is it right that only clients running outlook 2010 with BCM are able to open this shared database and that any user with office 2013 and bcm installed cannot open this database?

    When I try to search for the database when first running BCM it does find the shared one but its greyed out and cannot move forward with it.

    Just wondering if anyone else has tried this and run into the same issue

    after doing a bit more searching it does appear that you cannot share a database between two different versions of office (2010/2013) back to the drawing board then

    Thank you free780, at the moment it does look like we would need to upgrade everyone who would be using BCM to office 2013 and not have some on it and some on 2010. I was also reading else where that the extension issues between 2007 and 2010 should be sorted for 2010 to 2013 that really would make life allot easier.
