When I was trying to create a report in VS 2008 using Crystal Report using MS Access Database (.accdb) I cannot find the Provider ACE.12.0.OLEDB provider from the provider list. But There is only the Jet.4.0.OLEDB PRovider. What is the problem in here?

The ACE DB provider is not available in a 64 bit version. If your application (Crystal reports in this case) is executing as a 64 bit process then it will not be able to reference ACE - it is 32 bit only. Use the JET provider instead.

Isn't there any other solution to overcome this problem? I am using the MS OFFICE 2010 64 bit edition.!

Unfortunately not - there is no 64 bit version of the ACE provider, and MS have shown no signs of producing one.
