Matlab 64 bit Access 32 bit

We use a few access databases for storage of some of our in house data. When we have a 64 bit version of Matlab on the same machine as a 32 bit version of Microsoft Access it seems like all of our attempts to pull from the Access databases fail. I know there is an issue with 64->32 bit compatibility but is there any way around this without having to upgrade our version of Access? It's difficult to upgrade our Office package as we have many Excel add-in's from external vendors that are currently only written in the 32bit form.
Thanks for any help you can offer, Brian

Any updates on this problem did you find a work around? My company will not allow me to use 64 bit Office but I have to use 64bit Matlab.

After speaking with support multiple times it appears that this is currently not possible. The accessing of a 32 bit Office application data via 64 bit Matlab would require Microsoft to create an ODBC driver to do so. Currently there is nothing like this available.

Yes, unfortunately in-process communication requires that both software packages to be 64-bit.
