We need to still link to MS Access databases and understand the 64 bit SQL Server does not allow. So, a thought is to have the new 64 bit SQL Server coexist with a 32 bit SQL Server Express instance. The thought is the 32 bit instance will enable linked server access to MS Access databases. We would then link the 64 bit instance to the 32 bit Express instance. Does this seems like a plausible solution? Does SQL Server 2008 remedy this problem? Thanks in advance.
