Arthur, the only reason to move to 64 is a memory issue. If it's necessary
do it. If not, don't.

64 bit t can use more memory- usually a good thing. However the one major
app I was involved with over past 6 years gained nothing whatever in speed.
Not only that but we had some kind of limits that would be reached on number
of reports that could print individually in code - we hoped it would
increase 64 bit but it did not.
I want others to give their impression too but the program we had was
larger, using more class modules and calculations than anything I ever
worked on in Access and we gained nothing going to 64 bit.
