Video: The Current State of Access

I promise not to resell every one of my talks here, but this one was different, i.e. programmatic and pretty comprehensive if you're looking for up-to-date information on Access.


Last week I gave a 70 minute presentation for the Denver Area Access User Group on many aspects of Access. Some of them might interest you. So I'm listing the exact links to the chapters in the timeline of the recording on Youtube, in case you want to get spot-on information:



12:45 Death Rumours - antidotes, which I then made a permanent article here on AFo

68:55 The Access Song, Verse 2 - verse 1 can be found in an AFo article


We'll continue with the latest information, also directly from Microsoft's Access team, at the Access DevCon in April.


If you have opinions about the contents of my talk (even if completely contrary ;-), you can comment on Youtube and of course feel free to comment here.


P.S. @George Young, I promise to remember that Colorado is pronounced AH not AY! I shouldn't insult even the host every time. 🤷‍♂️

Dear Karl,


first of all, thank you very much for your valuable work in the Access Community over so many years!!!


Access has only been blessed with a few innovations by Microsoft since the 2010 Version, but at least there is still sufficient support and Access is still part of the Office Product Suite. The classic Win32 Desktop Apps are the most powerfull variants (not the Web, Mac or Mobile Versions) and with Access VBA you can also use the functionality of Outlook, Word, Excel etc. very efficiently.


That's why I haven't had much concern about Access Applications and their future viability. Until now...

In 2025, the classic Outlook will be abolished and the new One Outlook will no…

Hi,


I'm not sure where you got "2025" from. At Microsoft, the statements about the timeline are deliberately vague (the responsible manager said in the video "a couple of years", "maybe a little bit more than 2 years", "there is flexibility" etc.). I think the big upset of Windows Outlook users is still to come and there are a lot other obstacles. So it might take a few years longer.


But yes, Outlook is the first major classic Office application that Microsoft is completely moving away from COM. It is the natural first candidate for this as communication software with inevitably a lot of Internet etc..


I am currently trying to get statements from Microsoft on the issues of programmability…

Hi,


Close Access and open it again. The problem should be gone.

If you're wondering why, watch a few minutes from this point in the video that investigative journalists once shot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvbzxJL8Qh8&t=259s
