I'm trying to connect my database to visual studio but it's not working. I think it might be because of how my database is saved in Microsoft Access.
I've attached an image of what it looks like. It's saved as an ACCDB File.
Shouldn't it be saved as a Microsoft Access Database file?

Which version of Visual Studio are you running?

I'm going to guess an older one (2008 maybe?) that doesn't support the Office 2007 file formats (booo, hiss and other such disgruntled noises).

ACCDB is the Office 2007 and onward database standard for Access.

Don't worry. I've got it sorted out
