    How was the data transferred to the new computer? Was it stored in the cloud or local?  You may be able to find the files on the old computer still. Is this new computer the same type of an OS system 32 or 64 bit ? More details would help us try and figure where they went.

    Where are your .MDB files? When you say "Access does not have my data", does that mean that you also don't know where they are? Why do you expect Access to find them on a new computer?


    To be any more specific, we'd need to know all relevant details about the old database and its environment, plus all relevant details of the new environment.

    There are various freeware or free Access viewer tools in the market. You can use them to view or find your mdb files.

    First make sure all the required files are there that is on your computer, by try this simple trick, type ext:mdb* to file explorer search field, this will search all files with file extension starting with mdb. If found then you can open access and open the same.

    One thing that no one that thought to state. Office 365 (Access) no longer uses an MDB format. It is now in accdb format. Did you convert your databases to the new format? Also how old was your access MDB. It is possible that your format is too old to be recognized in Office 365. You also have to make it a Trusted document too.

    @bhannah: Nice catch.. I don't use Office 365, but forgot that was a change that catches a lot people off guard. Why rename the file extension after all these years?? Only Microsoft...
