Hi,

I now see Access has been removed from Office 365 susbcriptions - the only alternative is buying a single license by the look of it. Is there a way to migrate Access Databases to SharePoint (which I understand is included within Office 365 and obviously allows access online).

Thanks, we have briefly attempt to "publish" the database but don't have the time to resolve all of the issues to get it to work. We will probably look at consultancy if it is possible.

Hmm, you can't just push an Access database to the web mainly because no VBA allowed but there will be other changes as well. You could consider a Hybrid...

...work still involved but none like what will be involved with pushing the entire database to SharePoint. Perhaps you should tell us your needs might help to lead a *cheaper* solution.

The Access Web also has the difference of using Macros (instead of actual code) that limit functionality. So, and Access dB can't just convert.
The real problem has been that one set of Access Macros can becomes obsolete with the next release.
