Easy custom database applications

Access is now much more than a way to create desktop databases. It’s an easy-to-use tool for quickly creating browser-based database applications that help you run your business. Your data is automatically stored in a SQL database, so it’s more secure and scalable than ever, and you can easily share your applications with colleagues.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromGreat power but needs a few updateGreat power and flexibility to create applications for our small business clients. I have recently heard blog reporters mention “the market for Access is shrinking.” As an owner of a software firm, our 1,800+ clients have actually asked for MORE capabilities and development projects with a front-end of Access. So I could not disagree more with the said blogs. Our clients love the ability to, in-house, develop queries after a brief "how-to," giving them great flexibility to generate data output on their own. The option to quickly manipulate data and create reporting functions is an invaluable asset.Only two issues (aside from minor bugs) are 1) touch-keyboard (on Surface 2/3/3Pro & HP Laptops) will not respond (pop-out) when I enter into a text field which makes tablet use more difficult than it needs to be and 2) we need Microsoft to release a 2016 Run-Time version of 2016 so we can properly link to other Office 2016 applications such as Outlook and Excel (which our small business already have). Last suggestions is to enable a database converter to Visual Studio so that we can leverage VS to create a web-based, mobile friendly app to complement their Access front-end / SQL back-end deployment.Overall, I would and will recommend Access 2016 to our clients -- after the first update is released to clear up a few minor bugs. We look forward to Microsoft's new features coming to Access 2016 and beyond!

Rated 1 out of5 by fromVersion for Mac usersI bought this thinking that it would be accessible to my Mac, but I was wrong. You need to have q package that allows access to be installed into Macs and not just for Windows.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromCould not install!I had to asked for a refund as it said if I installed Access it was not compatible with Microsoft Word that I need just as much. I need both programs for this non-profit work I do. I don't know how to fix this problem as I need both programs on my new laptop.

Rated 2 out of5 by fromPivot Feature removedBought this to analyze large data storage. Expected to be able to use pivot function in Access to mine data but it has been removed from the 2016 version.Data exceeds performance limitations when trying to use excel pivot option. Would have preferred purchasing older version had it been available.
