Ms Access 2013 is all about web apps

In the 2013 editionaccess-2013 of Ms Office, the Access application too seems to have got a major shot in the arm. It comes in form of web apps which allow you to share the data stored in an Access database online. Essentially you get to create browser based RDMBS application that does not require any intricate coding from your part. All you need to do is select the data elements you want to monitor say contact table or a specific project and Access would do the rest. Let’s explore web apps in detail.


Begin with Creating an App from the existing templates

If you are just starting with Access 2013 you should ideally begin with one of preexisting templates available in Ms Access. To access them you need to just head to Access startup screen and then choose the template that meets your requirement. You would come across several well thought out ones including templates for tracking assets or contacts.  After you have selected a template you need assign it a name and give a web location and finally click on the Create button. Your web app is thus launched.


Placing Data in the App

Creating the app is the first step of the process. You would have to add data to the app to make it serve it purpose. It can be achieved by adding tables to it.  Besides tables you can add data from other external sources and can even include text files and Excel spreadsheets too.


Key Advantage of Access Apps

Access apps are designed to help save your time and share data online. Moreover they come with their own navigation interface elements which effectively save hours of work on your part. From detailed views to switchboards and a highly well tailored action bar for performing common tasks like addition or deletion. The fact that they comes with controls to modify views on the fly add to their usability.  The interface elements are common across all web apps and thus anyone can grasp them within minutes.


Negotiating MDB corruption issues in Ms Access

The Ms Access database can at times get compromised due to improper handling and system errors. In fact if you shutdown the PC without closing the Access database, there is a chance the application gets compromised. Power outages to network errors, and whole set of other issues can trigger an MDB corruption which can risk the entire data stored in the Access database. Given the scenario it makes great sense for a business which uses the Access application to maintain its repository to invest in an access repair tool.

Incidentally it can even negotiate a corrupt accdb file with aplomb and is not challenged by the media type where such files are present including optical media disks or flash drives.
