Is Microsoft Access going away?

The short answer is no however, it is certainly being left behind. Microsoft Access 2016 saw a significant reduction in functionality, causing applications built on earlier versions to load as an error, as MS Access 2016 could not support the functionality the application required. 

Applications built using Microsoft Access 2013 or earlier will not work when loaded onto the Windows 10 operating system. This is why it’s important to consider migrating your Microsoft Access application to the cloud. 

Reported experiences include: 

  • Microsoft Access opens and then immediately closes 
  • Microsoft Access application is showing as a ‘virus’ 
  • Microsoft Access application is showing as an error 

Recreate your Microsoft Access application in ReAccess today, keeping your MS Access app working regardless of changes to your operating system or computer software.
