    Hi there,

    does anyone have experience with MS-Office 2010 64bit, esp. with regard to
    its alleged capability to handle files larger than 2 GB? We tried the latest
    64bit-beta that is available for download, and found the following:

    Excel: Will not complain at files > 2 GB, opens them, pulls in its 1,000,000
    records, and just silently drops the rest of the file
    Access: Will NOT open files > 2 GB, says "File has no data, or is too
    large". That's what we are getting with earlier versions of Office, and also
    with 32bit-versions, that cannot handle > 2 GB.

    We are wondering wether this is due to the fact that this is still a beta,
    or if maybe we have made some kind of mistake here.

    Any input is welcome.

    Thanks. I found out that MS-Access 2010 64bit still cannot go beyond 2GB
    file size, and EXCEL only with a 3rd-party add-in, which I haven't tried
    yet. So, basically, MS still hasn't fulfilled their promise regarding >2GB
    for the 64bit-version.
