Anyone Using 64-bit Office 2010 Yet?

I did a thread asking if anyone was using the 64-bit version of Internet Explorer recently. Now, I will do one for Microsoft Office 2010 - is anyone using the 64-bit version yet? The Office 2010 retail versions include both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions, but installs the 32-bit version by default.

When Office 2010 was first released, it was stated that the 64-bit version wasn't ready for primetime. However, now with all the updates for Office 2010, I decided to make a move to the 64-bit version, and I haven't had any issues whatsoever.

So, is anyone here using 64-bit Office 2010?

I tried it for a little while, but had to give it up, because most add-ins are only compatible with 32-bit. The nice thing, though, is that Access is able to handle more data with the 64-bit version. Once the two add-ins I use have 64-bit compatible versions, I'll switch over to 64-bit.

All in all, similar to the 64-bit problems with I.E... plugins, namely Flash, kept me from using it.

Flash Player is now available for 64-bit IE. After it was released is when I made the switch.

Really? Have they beaten the 2 GB database size limit? That would be a big help to me. I'm in telecom, and 2 GB is like only a day or two's worth of data.

Well crap, I was certain that was true. I just tried it out on a laptop with Office 64-bit and... Access still won't allow more than 2GB. So, strike that off the list.

The data I work with for work is about as much as you, so I ended up sticking Access in the garbage and now use MySQL for data work. Much better... and much better SQL query abilities, as well, IMO.

No question SQL is better and faster with big databases. My problem is that I barely know anything about SQL - apart from a few very simple queries. For more sophisticated multilayered queries I liked being able to use Access.

Naw, I have managed to avoid changing over to Microsoft Turd. Corel's recent release of WordPerfect X5 continues the legacy of superior office software at lower cost.

What is your obsession with 64 bit? There is little to no difference between a 64 and 32 bit application, other than the way it is compiled. There may be slight performance gains due to it running natively on the CPU, but for something like a web browser and office, the differences will be unnoticeable.

I have been running Windows 7 64-bit for some time now, and honestly couldnt tell you whether I am using 32 or 64 bit version of office.

I dont think this is a physical limit, but rather a commercially imposed limit - i.e Microsoft would prefer you to buy SQL Server if you need more than 2GB. You could try SQL Server Compact Edition / Express edition, both of which are free, and limited to 10 GB database sizes for the same reason.



That'll teach you
