Now More Open for Collaborative Projects Based on Database Management

By Pablo Conde Ferrer

On Wednesday, December 10, 2014

Much talked about, the 2013 version of Microsoft Access is now geared towards cloud integration. When it was bundled with the 2013 version of MS Office productivity suite, it was already perceived to have this function and it did. As evidence, its top feature is its ability to create web apps based on databases and are shared via SharePoint or SkyDrive, now more referred to as OneDrive. In building apps, MS Access offers a variety of templates to choose from. Users can easily create apps based on these templates as it allows them to simply pick data needed for their apps. With the necessary data needed for their apps, the software through its templates, generate the app’s database structure, command interface, and other elements. Aside from this powerful function, MS Access 2013 is highly intuitive. This is good news to database developers. More importantly, because this software is now tailored to be more connected, users can use OneDrive and SharePoint to share their work with others for collaboration.

Pros

  • Makes room for collaborative efforts
  • Offers templates for creating apps

Cons

  • Trial version only offers limited functions

Sleek Software Appearance Goes with the New Features and Functions

By Sam James

On Friday, January 16, 2015

Considering the fact that MS Access was designed for sharing with business partners or colleagues, users must always be connected to SkyDrive, Microsoft’s cloud storage system and is now OneDrive. While useful for huge networks due to their stability, it may be problematic for home or remote users because if they are disconnected, they will have to edit data offline. On the other hand, MS Access 2013 includes various tools, so users can easily import data from other MS Office products in case they get disconnected from the cloud. As for the appearance, the 2013 version of MS Access is color-coordinated. This is especially helpful as it highlights notifications and key menus, so users can easily navigate the software, a move useful for new users. The software also has templates for creating modern web apps based on databases. In the end, MS Access provides a quick way to create apps thanks to its well-designed interface. In addition, because it can now be used for collaborative efforts in creating database-based web apps, it supports multiple browsers for viewing said apps. It functions well with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox.

Pros

  • Excellent upgrade in accordance with other new MS Office apps
  • Supports various web browsers for viewing apps

Cons

  • Removed some functions from 2010 version

A New Database Management Tool with the Ability to Create Apps

By Daren Garius

On Tuesday, September 2, 2014

MS Access is not your typical office software. It is helpful for database management, though. The 2013 edition, with version reference number 15.0.4420.1017 is its release to manufacturing (RTM) version. A RTM version is a software’s version that is distributed to manufacturers to bundle it onto their hardware products for future versions. Now what’s in it for us? For starters, it is used to create a database. It is especially useful for PHP developers. In this version, MS Access now enables its users to build Access apps that are compatible with Microsoft’s online collaboration and management framework, SharePoint. Templates are provided, so users can easily collaborate with colleagues in creating apps. In addition, because Access involves database management, apps users create automatically generate information from an available database and use its structure, command interface, and navigation. These elements can be customized as well according to users need. Not to disappoint previous users of Microsoft’s database management tool, this version can still be used to build stand-alone databases.

Pros

  • Retained most of its 2010 version functions
  • Featured new and advanced functions

Cons

  • Rarely used query functions were removed

Review

Microsoft Access 2013 is a database management system which is bundled into the Microsoft Office 2013 productivity suite. The most outstanding feature is the possibility of building a Web app as a new type of database. If you want to build an app, you just need to select the data you want to track, such as contacts, tasks or projects. This software is then able to create the database structure, and you are ready to add and edit data.

If you want to build an app, you just need to select the data you want to track, such as contacts, tasks or projects. This software is then able to create the database structure, and you are ready to add and edit data.

Despite the powerful benefits it brings to you, this program is very intuitive, since you just need to write what you need to track. You will also be able to add tables to your app by using pre-designed table templates. Depending on the tasks you want to perform, you will be able to search for the right free templates, since there are several different models available that will fit your particular necessities for your individual projects.

Another benefit is that you don't need to have Microsoft Access 2013 installed on your computer to use the apps you've created. The database allows sharing of your data and control of the access to it, thanks to its SharePoint and SkyDrive integration. On the downside, it has removed some features like the Upsizing Wizard, included in the Access edition of Microsoft Office 2010 suite, and Pivot Chart, to make room for the new features. It is important to mention that if you want to download this program you have to download the complete Microsoft Office 2013 suite.

Use this software with templates and extra help

The first thing you must know about this database program is the layout and functions of the different buttons. The most important one is "File", which is used to manage your documents. You can use this button to open, close, save or share your files. In the ribbon, you will find all the options you can use to create your file, depending on where you click on, whether "Home" or "Database Tools".

As well as all that, you can filter objects by typing any word into the search box of Microsoft Access 2013; or hide the ribbon by clicking on the up-arrow placed on the top-right corner of the window. Moreover, you can get free help from Microsoft about this program by clicking on the question mark, or by using the templates that this software places at your disposal.
