Access - What is Access?

Do you have an idea for a database or web app to help your team work more efficiently? With Access, you don’t have to be a developer to implement it.

Take advantage of your data with the power of Access—without writing code or becoming a database expert:

  • Use templates to build databases and web apps quickly.

  • Easily find and report on data stored in Access.

  • Streamline data entry with autocomplete.

  • Create web apps that work in the browser or databases on your desktop, and share them with others.

  • Build professional-level web apps with just Access—no coding required.

  • Get greater reliability, scalability, and security, because Access web app data is stored in a Microsoft Azure SQL database or in SQL Server.

  • Manage and monitor your Access web apps through Access Services, SharePoint Online, on-premises SharePoint Server 2013, or SharePoint Server 2016. Take advantage of SharePoint permissions and app usage data.
