Customize MS Access: Conceal Database Interface


 S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark Join Now

In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I will show you how to professionally mask the Access interface to impress your clients with functionality while dispelling biases. From custom startup forms, shortcuts with unique icons, to splash screens, we tackle it all in a straightforward, actionable checklist. This tutorial is designed to elevate your database, making it look less like Access and more like a bespoke software solution. Stay tuned for how to streamline your applications aesthetic.

Shane from Evanston, Illinois (a Platinum Member) asks: How can I showcase the capabilities of Microsoft Access without making it obvious that I'm using it? Some of my customers don't realize how powerful and awesome Access really is, and they prefer software built with other tools. I want to highlight the functionality and strength of the software I create without drawing attention to it being built in Access. I definitely wouldn't lie about it, and if asked, I would be honest, but I'd rather they see the quality of work first without any biases.
