Microsoft Access Introduction (2007, 2010 & 2013)

Access 2007

The toolbar was removed in Access 2007 and was replaced with the ribbon. This feature grouped related functions in to tabs along the top of the screen, making it easier for users to access them. The 2007 release also ushered in the era of the Microsoft Button, which centralised core functions, ultimately making them more accessible.

Access 2010

Although Access 2010 had its problems, most people agree that its Macro Designer feature was a good idea. This feature worked in two ways - acting either before or after a key event. The program provided five unique types of Macro, each prefixed with the term 'Before' or 'After' to make its use value clear.

Access 2013

With the release of the 2013 version of Access, Microsoft shifted the emphasis from 'database' to 'database creation tool.' This meant users could create apps - so long as they were able to use SharePoint. Access 2013 now also works in line with other programs in the suite by directly connecting to Microsoft's Cloud service.
