Access Updater 1.0 Instructions

Setting Up the Admin PC

Step 1. Put AccessUpdater.accdb in your database Admin folder


Step 2. Copy your current Front End file to your shared Server Folder


Step 3. In your Admin Front End Database, import 2 objects from the AccessUpdater.accdb file: AccessUpdaterF (form) and AccessUpdaterModule (module).


Step 4. Set AccessUpdaterF as your database's Startup object (File > Options > Current Database).


Step 5. Open AccessUpdaterF

Step 6. Type in Username: Admin

Step 7. Type in Password: alz

You can change this password in the code if you want (just search for "alz" in the Form Module).


Step 8. Type in your Startup Form, such as MainMenuF


Step 9. Type in or Browse (...) for your Front End database in the Server shared folder


Step 10. Click Save Settings

Step 11. Click Push Update


Access Updater will perform it’s magic. Your Front End file will be copied up to the server. Any changes you make to the Access Updater accdb file will also be copied up.


When the update is complete, your original Admin Front End database will relaunch. You will see that no updates are necessary.


After 3 seconds your Main Menu form will open.


Setting Up the User PCs

Step 1. Copy the Front End file and AccessUpdater.accdb from the Server shared folder to the User's personal folder on their system


Step 2. Open the User's Front End File


Step 3. Type in a unique Username

Step 4. Enter Startup Form

Step 5. Select the same Front End File on the Server

Step 6. Save Settings and Restart the database


Now, whenever the user first loads their database, they will get a warning if there are updates available, and after 10 seconds, their database will shut down, download the update, and then restart.
