Summary
  • Microsoft's Access 2.0 database application development software is a useful tool for creating medium-sized databases for PCs, but still lacks many of the features required for creating critical client/​server applications. One of the flaws of Access 2.0 is that it only can be used on PCs running Windows. This means that users can access other databases such as Paradox or FoxPro, but any accessed tables must either be imported permanently into Access or the database must be converted to the Access format. Another drawback is connectivity. Unlike its competitors such as Gupta, PowerBuilder and Cognos, Microsoft does not include vendor-supplied links to the leading databases. Access 2.0 does, however, provide strong graphical features that significantly facilitate application development. The program's report preview function and property inspectors greatly simplify database application development. The online Cue Cards provide a helpful guide to Access' features.
