I know this question has been asked quite a few times before but I couldn't find an answer that suited my situation at all.
So this is what happens. Currently, I am using ArcGIS to map the sewer connections, which have a dataset attached to them (size, length etc.) Once a week I export these to a personal geodatabase called "Sewage.mdb". This file is used by QGIS (which several others use at work) and shows the updated points with the associated detail. All the other people at work do is open the QGIS file shortcut on their desktop and it loads the existing qgis model data from the .mdb file.
Now I am trying to update everyone from QGIS 1.80 to 2.8.2, when I have trialed this I get an error that my sewer connections are going to cause an error because it can't read from the .mdb file. There I get the error, "Sewage.mdb is not a valid layer and can not be added to the map"
TL;DR ArcMap 10 export > Sewage.mdb > QGIS loads Sewage.mdb > error Sewage.mdb is not a valid layer and can not be added to the map.
Also I have tried to add the layername after to see inside of the .mdb file with no luck "|layername=DCCC_Assets_DBO_SewerNetwork_Junctions"
