ok, thank you! I see that the only way is to install the two versions of the bd access engine.

The truth is that the solution they give on some sites to install access and powerbi with its two versions in 32 bits, seems to me a PARCHE. Many companies install their office 365 with 32 bits and then to work with powerbi, the 64-bit version is much more agile... I don't know how there are still people working with the 32-bit version.

This seems to me to be a fairly obvious lack of powerbi.
