About Microsoft Access 2016

Microsoft Access 2016 offers few improvements or enhancements from Microsoft Access 2013. Access does include the new "Tell Me" feature so you can input the name of a command or button to quickly locate usable options. New database templates now feature a more updated style. The default sizingfor the "Show Table" dialog feature is now larger and will display more table and query names.

The "Linked Table Manager" dialog can now has the capacity to create an Excel workbook containing all linked data sources included in a Microsoft Access database application. you can connect to your SharePoint site with a browser to manage user permissions and monitor usage for Access 2016 apps using Microsoft Access Services with SharePoint Online or on-premises SharePoint Server 2013. This version of Microsoft Office 365 Access also eatures a major update to the "Linked Table Manager", allowing users to add new forms, charts and reports. It also gives you the option to link or import data from Dynamics 365 and Saleforce.

Microsoft Access- What Is Programming?

In Access, programming is the process of adding functionality to your database by using Access macros or Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) code. For example, suppose that you have created a form and a report, and you want to add a command button to the form that, when clicked, opens the report. Programming, in this case, is the process of creating a macro or VBA procedure and then setting the command button's OnClick event property so that clicking the command button runs the macro or procedure. For a simple operation, such as opening a report, you can use the Command Button Wizard to do all the work, or you can turn off the wizard and do the programming yourself.

Note: Many Microsoft Office programs use the term "macro" to refer to VBA code. This can be confusing to Access users because, in Access, the term "macro" refers to a named collection of macro actions that you can assemble by using the Macro Builder. Access macro actions represent only a subset of the commands available in VBA. The Macro Builder gives you a more structured interface than the Visual Basic Editor, enabling you to add programming to controls and objects without having to learn VBA code. You should remember that in Access Help articles, Access macros are referred to as macros. Conversely, VBA code is referred to as VBA, code a function, or a procedure. VBA code is contained in class modules (which are part of individual forms or reports and typically contain code just for those objects) and in modules (which are not tied to specific objects and typically contain "global" code that can be used throughout the database).

Objects (such as forms and reports) and controls (such as command buttons and text boxes) have various event properties to hich you can attach macros or procedures. Each event property is associated with a specific event, such as clicking the mouse, opening a form, or modifying data in a text box. Events can also be triggered by factors outside of Access, such as system events, or by macros or procedures that are attached to other events. Your database can get complex if you add many macros or procedures to several event properties of many objects, but in most cases, you can achieve the results that you want by using very little programming.

At MS Access Solutions, we've been programmers for so long, we almost can't remember a time when we didn't know how to develop programs using VBA code. Writing programming code is a skill, like any other, it must be learned. There are rules and, frankly, very little creativity. VBA code is either correct or we will not use it. We don't take short cuts so your Microsoft Access application code is always created properly so it and works properly.
