What's new in Access 2013?
In a word, apps. An Access web app is a new type of database that you build in Access, then use and share with others as a SharePoint app in a web browser. To build an app, you just select the type of data you want to track (contacts, tasks, projects, and so on). Access creates the database structure, complete with views that let you add and edit data. Navigation and basic commands are built-in, so you can start using your app right away.
Create custom apps fast without being a developer
Welcome screen lift-off. Start creating a custom app from the Welcome screen, or get inspired by one of the new and professionally-designed app templates.
Table templates. Simply type what you need to track and Access uses table templates to deliver an app that does the job. Access handles the complexities of fields, relationships, and rules so you can concentrate on your project. You’ll have a new app with a natural UI up and running in no time.
Create and run legacy databases. Enjoy support for your existing desktop databases (ACCDB/MDB).
Experience apps that are easy to use even as they grow with your business
Gorgeous simplicity. Never again get "lost in the data." A standardized app framework makes navigating apps familiar and easy. And the apps you rely on every day remain easy to use and professional-looking even as data volume and complexity grow.
Related items control. Take a peek at additional relevant information in the database without changing screens. You always have the right context when reviewing or entering information.
Autocomplete control. Entering data accurately is a breeze with drop-down menus and recommendations that appear when you begin typing.
Drill-thru. With one click you can view a pop-up of a record and dig into the details.
Share your data and control access to it more easily
New Office App model. As an IT manager for your company, you'll love the new Office App model. Access apps are accessible on SharePoint or an on-premises server via a browser, and users don’t need Access installed to use apps you've created.
Data stored in SQL Server. Access apps are stored in Microsoft SQL Azure/Server so your data is now protected by disaster recovery and back-up and restore features. SQL Azure/Server also provides your business or department with long-term scalability of mission-critical business data.
Office 365 deployment. You can now use SharePoint user access control and centralized app management features with Access apps.
