Access 2013 vs. Access 2010

    General discussion


    It looks like they are just removing things. What is the advantage of moving to Access 2013? Other than the newer year on the end of the name.

    Anyone know where this profile is stored?

  • Actually a great many improvements were made to provide us with Access Web Apps which are actually totally new and different from the 2010 Access Services. Access 2013 Web Apps are complete web pages. Some great improvements were made because instead of storing the schema and data in SharePoint Access Web Apps now store all of the schema (Design information of the database) and the data in SQL Azure (or Azure SQL Databases which are an edition of SQL Server in the cloud) or your own SQL Server 2012 database. Macros were improved for web apps and the Rapid Development features for Web Apps keep the tradition of RAD development going for Microsoft Web Apps.

    I have fixed the links below:

    One important point to note is that Access Web Apps are Web Apps for SharePoint, which is greatly different from the other office Apps the Web Apps for Office.
