Are Office 64-bit Versions Available?

Now that Microsoft have sorted out the bugs (oops "Documented Issues") with 64 bit Access we have started to create 64bit versions of our databases.

Each product demo download page will show clearly whether or not that database is available for 64bit Access yet.

Only the demo versions require separate ACCDE files for each. The full version ACCDB is one file which runs on both 32bit and 64bit Access.

Do the full version databases come with all the source code and design objects?

Yes, all our full version databases are supplied as "open source" standard Access ACCDB files complete with all design objects and VBA source code with unrestricted access to the visual basic project. This means that you will have full access to the system menu bars, database window, all design objects and VBA Project, just as though you had built it yourself from the start.

You will be able to change the design of anything to suit your requirement or add new functionality.

If you lack the time or expertise then we can connect you with an Access expert who can help you.

Can your databases be shared and updated by several users at the same time?

Yes, all our databases are multi-user, even the demo versions, and each user will require Microsoft Access installed on their machine. The only practical limit to the number of users is the capacity and speed of your network and server. We recommend that you try out the demo version on your server with several users "bashing away" to evaluate performance and response times. Please remember that there are no extra licensing costs for each user - one price for all situations.

Simply place the database file(s) in a shared network folder and each user just opens the Access database file.

Can your databases be shared over the internet?

Yes, we recommend a fat-server thin-client approach such as Terminal Services, Citrix, PC Anywhere or similar. If you have a dedicated network server then you probably already have Terminal Services available, speak to your IT support people who will be able to advise. We can connect you with a network specialist who can assist you with setting up our databases this way (they do charge a fee).

Can your databases be published to SharePoint, 365 or The Cloud for sharing via a browser or a Metro App?

No. All the "clever" stuff in our databases is accomplished by using 1000s of lines of VBA event coding and modules with calls to the Windows API for standard functions. VBA is not supported by web browsers and never will be. Microsoft have promised a replacement for VBA to facilitate event coding (e.g. something similar to Java), but weve not heard of anything yet.

Embedded macros are supposed to be the alternative but they can accomplish only a tiny percentage of what can be done with VBA.

I bought one of your databases a while ago but I have lost/broken it. Can I get a new download link and start over?

When you purchased your database, you will have been offered the opportunity to include extended download service which keeps a copy the download file available on the server for one year.

If you did include EDS then your original download link will still work.

If you did not include EDS, or it has expired because your purchase was more than one year ago, then you will need to re-purchase to acquire the latest version.

Do you provide automatic product updates?

No. As time goes by and as new versions of Access are released, our databases are enhanced and improved with additional functionality. It is impossible for us to offer any form of automatic update service because you may have made changes to the design of your copy which will cause any update attempt to fail.

I am getting security warnings when I open your database: Error 2950 Stop All Macros!

With the release of Office 2003 and later versions, Microsoft has deemed it necessary to burden The World with the unnecessary complication of Macro Security. Office 2007 went even further and introduced the Office Trust Center.

The following PDF documents explain the options open to you and how to avoid security warnings when opening our databases:

Access 2010 users click here

What's the difference between the Educational and Full versions?

There is no difference between the full and educational versions of our databases.

The full version price is not expensive for a commercial organisation but may be prohibitive to the education and charitable sectors or small start-ups etc. We like to provide a price break to students and those on a limited budget so that they can still obtain commercial quality software.

If you can afford the full price then please use it, otherwise you are welcome to use the educational price.
