I might be going crazy why ADP will no longer be supported in Access 2013 version, since most of our database I am using are in ADP. Please explain why this feature should be stopped. I wish that I could find other work before ms access 2013 ADP finally disappear.
Why is it that msaccess 2013 adp no longer available?
Yes, MS Access 2013 does not support ADP anymore. To answer your question why Microsoft has done like this, I can say just they thought the new SQL based Access 2013 has better functions than ADPs.
Many like you are just searching for a solution. However, there is no straightaway solution for this. The ADPs will not open in MS Access 2013. There are few ways you can mitigate it.
1. Converting old ADP to Access App solution.
2. Converting old ADP to linked Access Desktop Database
3. Converting old ADP to a fully SQL-based solution.
Hope that helps you to some extent.
