Due to the differences between Access versions, there is a separate version of Total Access Detective for each version of Microsoft Access. It can compare all the database formats that its Access version supports. For instance, if you are using Microsoft Access 2016, Total Access Detective 2016 will run in Access 2016 and compare Access ACCDB (2007-2016) and MDB (2000-2016) database formats. Simply choose the Total Access Detective version for the Access version you are running.
Since Microsoft Access 2013 discontinued support for Access Data Projects (ADPs), if you need to compare ADPs, you must use a 2010 or earlier version.
