Newly added Access Services on Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 enables you to make your databases available on the Web with new Web databases.

  • Start collaborating right away. Post your databases online and then access, view, and edit them from the Web. Users without an Access client can open Web forms and reports via a browser and their changes are automatically synchronized.

Whether you're a large corporation, small-business owner, nonprofit organization, or if you're just looking for more efficient ways to manage your personal information, Access 2010 makes it easier to get what you need done more quickly, with more flexibility, and with better results.

From Access 97 to Access 2010 March 2 2011
By J. Whitelaw - Published on
Platform for Display: PC Disc
I created fifteen databases from 1998 to now to help me in the office, and one other to help me at home, all created in Access 97. I've been using these databases for years and the largest one has a file size of 60 Mb; Access 97 would not let me create new reports in that one. I decided to try Access 2010 and was surprised that all 16 databases converted without any problems, at least none detected so far. My home computer and office computer are both over six years old, running WinXP on an Socket A processor with old DDR memory. Access 2010 runs OK on these old systems. Access 2010 is a definite upgrade from 97, and as soon as I learned the menu changes, I was up and running. I am glad I started in Access 97 though because The Help resources are pitiful in 2010 and hitting the F1 key doesn't get you much. Creating macros in 2010 is very easy and I like the ease of exporting reports to pdf for emailing. My largest database has 19 tables, 120 queries, 66 forms/subforms, 122 reports/subreports, 40 macros and 2 modules - scrolling through the ribbon menu on the left can be dizzying and takes too much patience, but I like the organization of the menus at the top of the screen. I also like the organization of the extensive properties menus that pop up on the right, and I like that each time I click on a control on a form, the right-side properties menu changes automatically for that control; I can make changes on the fly. The new features on these menus are useful for tweaking. Although Access 2010 is not perfect, I can live with it. Internet resources may have to suffice in place of the Access 97 Help assets, at the cost of my time.

Better than previous versions... Aug. 10 2010
By Amanda C. Barringer - Published on
Platform for Display: PC Disc Verified Purchase
I use Access mostly for class work, but the 2010 version is so much more user friendly that I'm starting to use it regularly to help create database apps, use it for home organization, etc. In an IT/Database Management class I took (upper division college course) we had older students (50+) who were trying to move up still in their careers and even though they still weren't comfortable with some computer elements such as open-source software, the 2010 Access was user-friendly enough that they could use it. Overall I find it very user friendly and really like the formatting.

More COmplicated Than 2003 Version March 27 2011
By Cracker Pot - Published on
Platform for Display: PC Disc Verified Purchase
I have been using ACCESS 2003 for several years to maintain a long list of adresses, phone, email info,etc. I was quite comfortable with it and expected that the 2010version would have advanced features. What I find instead are much the same features but the software seems more compliacted to use. I am having difficulty doing something as simple as printing of mailing labels.

Stick with Old Versions of Access Sept. 25 2010
By Jamie Nettles - Published on
Platform for Display: PC Disc Verified Purchase
I fell for the hype that Access 2010 was so much better than earlier versions. And I figured I was using a ten-year-old product (Access 2000) so it was about time to upgrade. Well, I bought it and regret it. As is usual for Microsoft, the new features just made things harder and none of the changes I wanted were implemented. The ribbon is just a menu turned on it's side (reminds me of the infamous paperclip). The ability to publish reports from Access to the web is just a marketing scheme from Microsoft to get you to buy Shareport. Synchronization between databases is on it's way out, probably because Microsoft realized that without synchronization developers would have more incentive to move to Shareport. If you're using an older version of Access, don't upgrade.

Access 2010 is better than 2007 barely Aug. 8 2011
By DBear - Published on

Microsoft has gone out of their way to screw up a good database tool like Access. Access 2010 is slightly better than 2007 but not much.
