Errors working with Access 2010 web databases on SharePoint Online


When attempting to open an Access 2010 web database within a SharePoint Online environment, you may receive one of the following error messages:

“Site is down”


“An error has occurred”


“Failed to evaluate expression ‘<expression>’  


The Product Group has reported that this issue should now be resolved for all tenants.

In some cases, you may need to make a design change in the Access client and then resync the web database in order to resolve the issue.

    We have the same issue hosting our Access 2010 database on SharePoint. We get the error message ‘An Error Has Occurred’ Click here to try again.

    I am still not able to access my Access db. The original error said “Error, Try again.” Now it is a “404 page not found” error. I think this second error message is the result of a MS tech trying to help restore the page before it was known there was some sort of bug running around effecting many of us. I believe the opening/landing page needs restoring.

    Who do I call?! Seriously, its been days…
