> "will I have any problems conforming to the 2013 access software"My belief is that you will not have issues. Nothing major has changed except if you are on Office 365, be sure to download and install the full versions of all the software so you get all the libraries

CelesteAs I said, there are no problems with multi-users with 2013 in a 2010 database. They can use databases back as far as 2000.
When you make changes to a 2013 database using 2016 as long as you don't use features not found in 2013 you should be okay. But if I were you I would set up a virtual machine and install 2013 on it so you are developing in the same version as what your users use.
As to staying current with the latest Office most large companies don't do that. They stay at least one version behind to avoid compatibility issues with the rest of the world and nasty bugs. Plus Microsoft is notorious for creating inferior products every other version. For example, Access 97 was rock solid. 2000 was a mess for at least the first year. After it was stable they came out with 2002 (aka XP). 2003 was my favorite. 2007 stunk.

I will be aware of the"bitness".
Now I find that I can purchase MS Off Prof 2016 at a very big discount through the hup program for my personal use. My company will be installing MS Off Prof 2013 onto all of our machines by the end of 2016 (yes, they have to check it out and make sure everything is copacetic with 33k+ machines) so we are always a bit behind.
My question now is if I purchase the 2016 and modify my database to the 2016 version on my personal machine, will I have any problems conforming to the 2013 access software.
The reason I am asking is that someone, per my manager, said that a 2010 dbase has problems on the 2013 software i.e. more that one user cannot be in it at the same time... Do you know that to be true? What about 2016?
Thank you for all of your help,
