This update is no longer available. To fix the issues that are described in this article, install the latest Microsoft Office update from the following Microsoft Docs article:

Latest updates for versions of Office that use Windows Installer (MSI)

This article describes update KB2956176 for Microsoft Access 2013 that was released on March 10, 2015.

Please be aware that the update in Download Center applies to Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2013. It does not apply to the Office 2013 Click-to-Run editions such as Microsoft Office 365 Home. (How to determine?).

Improvements and Fixes

Fixes the following issues:

  • You may be unable to calculate some fields in Access 2013 if the computer has not been restarted for a long time (24 days, for example).

  • When you open an Access Web App that contains very large data macros in Access 2013, you may receive an error message that resembles the following:

    There was a problem accessing a property or method of the OLE object.

  • When you try to delete multiple columns from a table in Access 2013, Access may crash.

  • Assume that you create an Access web app in Access 2013. An error may occur when you save the web app in the following scenarios:

    • You add a new field, then you set the Index property to Yes (No Duplicates), and then you set the data type to Image.

    • You add more than 32 new fields, and then you set the Index properties to Yes (No Duplicates).

    After, in this scenario, when you try to open the saved web app, the error occurs again.

  • Updates Access 2013 to work correctly with design changes that were made to the Microsoft Forms ActiveX Control (FM20.dll) shared component library. For more information, see the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:

    3025036 "Cannot insert object" error in an ActiveX custom Office solution after you install the MS14-082 security update
