I do not think it is possible to open a NEWER database with an
OLDER version of Access... when Microsoft makes changes to the
internal structure of the MDB file to allow for new features,
that means the file is not compatible with older software

You can use (create) an ADO or DAO.dbengine.36 object,
but you can't link to those tables.
