SQL Server 2012 Features

Our SQL Server 2012 hosting offering requires that you convert your Access ACCDB or MDB file to a SQL compatible format. With this service, you will be hosting all of your data in the cloud on our service and will be self-administering the Access Frontend. The main drawback to SQL hosting is that you cannot sync application changes to all of your users via the service. That means that if you change Access forms, reports, or queries – you will need to distribute the new front-end Access file to all of your users yourself. For Access Developers, this type of control is actually not much of a problem because this option allows them to utilize VBA code and gives developers the control over their Access Application that they desire while still keeping all of the data synced and stored in the cloud. SQL 2012 is an incredibly powerful tool that is built to store data and provides a variety of features to Microsoft Access Developers.
