Microsoft Access 2016 is much more than a way to create desktop databases. It's an easy-to-use tool for quickly creating browser-based database applications that help you run your business. Your data is automatically stored in a SQL database, so it's more secure and you can easily share your applications with colleagues.
If you don't have an Office 365 subscription, you may not have access to some features. Going forward, there will be regular updates with features where you'll need to have an Office 365 subscription to use them.
You'll notice a text box on the ribbon in Access 2016 that says: "Tell me what you want to do." This is a text field where you can enter words and phrases related to what you want to do next and quickly get to features you want to use or actions you want to perform. You can also choose to get help related to what you're looking for. Can't find a button? Click inside the Tell Me box (it's the box at the top, with the light bulb). Type a button or command, like "filter," and you'll see all of your filter-related options listed for you.
There are now two Office themes that you can apply to the Access program: Colorful and White.
If you are working on a complex Access application, for example, that includes links to many different data sources, it can be helpful to have a nice list of all the various data sources and their types. This exported list can be especially helpful if you are working on an Access application you did not originally design. With Access 2016, you'll find this task much easier using functionality built into the Linked Table Manager dialog.
In Access 2016, five of the most popular database templates have been redesigned to have a more modern look and feel. Each of the templates includes a Getting Started form with links to articles, videos, and other community resources.
In Access 2016, the default height of the Show Table dialog has been increased so you can easily see more table and query names in your database.
