How to create an MS Access 2013 Web App from within Sharepoint Enteprise

Creating an online MS Access Web App is simple with our Sharepoint 2013 Enterprise Plan. If you’ve just signed up for a free trial or if you’re wondering how to get started creating Access Databases online, you’re at the right tutorial!

The first step is to login to your Access Hosting Sharepoint 2013 Website (typically this looks like yourname.accessontheweb.com).  So type your web address in a web browser (we highly recommend Internet Explorer or Firefox for the best sharepoint compatibility) and login with the credentials that you received from Access Hosting.  Once you login, you should see the standard Sharepoint 2013 homepage.

The next step is to create an Access Web App.  Click the gear in the top right and select “Add an app” from the dropdown menu.  This will take you to a listing of all the Sharepoint 2013 apps that you can create.  Access Web Apps are actually on one of the last pages, so it’s easiest to just search for “access”.
