Power BI Desktop 32bit not working with Access 32bit

Hello friends,

I am having an issue connecting Power BI Desktop to Access, all on 32bit.

Could you please advise?

Thank you in advance.

Spec:

Win 10

Power BI desktop 32bit (Version: 2.40.4554.421 32-bit)

Access 32bit (O365 Pro Plus Version: 16.0.7167.2060)

 

Unable to Connect

We encountered an error when trying to connect

Details: "Microsoft Access: The 'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' provider is not registered on the local machine. The 32-bit version of the Access Database Engine 2010 Access Database Engine OLEDB provider is required to connect to read this type of file.

Hi @Vojta,

The above error message indicates the Access Database Engine in not installed on your machine,  please download 32-bit Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable  and install it, then check if you are able to connect to Access database from Power BI Desktop.

If the issue still persist, please help to share your Access database, I will test it in my Desktop.
