"Jennifer has been fantastic to work with. She made certain she understood our unique needs for creating and updating our Access files. She asked questions that helped us tell her exactly what we really needed.
Jennifer was great to work with and able to get our Access forms and reports all working. She responded promptly to communications. I would definitely hire her again."

Is my data private and secure using MS Access?There are various methods of keeping data private. Because MS Access is usually installed on a local computer or local computer network, bad actors using the internet rarely see it. Passwords with logon forms, an option in Access databases, will provide user-level security. A further level of privacy may be attained using encryption.
What is Microsoft Access?Access is a database application included in most Microsoft Office/Office 365 editions for Windows. Unlike its more famous cousin, Excel, it is a robust relational database with tables, fields, and queries. Code in the Visual Basic for Applications language is used to automate the database. Forms can be created to view and edit data, reducing the risk of errors. Access also allows for generating detailed reports customized by date, category, and sorting options. Widely revered as the best Rapid Application Development platform ("RAD"), this software has been available for many years and is still widely used globally.
Is Access outdated?Newer database software options are typically web-based, making them convenient for users with laptops and phones on the go. This is a great advantage! However, these applications often require a subscription, meaning there is a recurring monthly or annual fee for each user. If the fee is not paid, all stored data will be lost. If you have an unreliable internet connection or prefer to store your data locally, Access is the more suitable choice. If you already have a Microsoft Office version that includes Access, using it is free.
Will Access databases run on my MAC computer?There are various options for installing Windows-based software applications like Access on a Mac. Using the one that's the right one for you depends on which Mac system you have. Once you make this change, you can run your Mac as usual or switch to the Windows overlay. Consult a Mac specialist for help choosing and installing the best one for your situation.
Can my whole team use an Access database at once?Yes, Access can be configured to operate as a multi-user system. Access databases may easily be “split” such that the tables where data is stored are placed on one computer or “server” computer, and the forms, queries, and reports (“the front end”) are installed on each user’s machine. Each “frontend” database is then linked to the tables in the “backend” database via a LAN or “Local Area Network." As users change the data, it’s instantly updated in the backend and becomes available to all. Record locking seamlessly prevents users from simultaneously editing the same record in the same table
Can I view my Access data on the web with my browser?Yes! There are a few options for doing this. You can place your data on your SharePoint site, use an SQL server configuration, or pay a monthly fee to a 3rd party host. Each of these requires a more complex setup than using a LAN, but the benefits of having your Access database be portable and widely accessible are significant.
