Is Microsoft Access Going Away?

Is Access Going Away? Being Phased Out, Discontinued, Retired?


 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

At least once a week I get asked a question like "is Microsoft Access going away?" "is Access being phased out?" or "is Access being discontinued?" Of course, the answer to all of these questions is a resounding NO. In this video, I'll show you some direct quotes from the Microsoft Access Team Leader, Ebo Quansah. I'll tell you what's planned for the future of Access, and explain why there seems to be so much confusion on the Interwebs as to whether or not Access is being canned. Bottom line: Access is alive and well. Watch the video for details.

Access Cascade Conference

If you love Microsoft Access, I highly recommend Access Day events by J Street Technology. I was a sponsor for one in 2014 in Denver and I had a great time. They just had the 2020 conference virtually due to Covid, but it was still a lot of fun. Even as a seasoned Access veteran, I always learn a lot of new tricks, I've met some cool people, and had a great time. https://www.jstreettech.com/accessday.aspx

Access is Super Useful Upload Images   Link

Thank you for clearing the air on this question. I see articles forecasting access going away all over the internet which is frustrating because it's not a bad tool! Access is super useful and powerful. I use access in my line of work and it never disappoints and always delivers. I think people get intimidated by Access because there are so many bells and whistles to it. Your videos help break that intimidation and reach those folks who are curious about access. Keep it up!

Glad it was helpful. There are a few groups of Access haters. (1) people who know Excel and are intimidated by Access because they don't understand it. (2) IT guys who think Access is for NOOBZ and you should use something real like Oracle. (3) Database pros who are trying to sell you a different solution and will bad-talk Access to try and sell you on their cloud service. (4) Microsoft haters. People who can't stand anything Redmond.

But yes. Access is, by far, THE BEST desktop database development tool on the planet. I say "desktop" because obviously it doesn't run on tablets, phones, or over the web (by itself). It's great on it's own for personal, small, and mid-sized business use. Match it up with it's big brother, SQL Server, and it's great for ANY business.
