Distribute Your Database with Free Runtime Edition

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

Learn how to use the Microsoft Access Runtime Edition to install a FREE version of your database for other people to use. As long as they don't need to make design changes, they can use the Runtime Edition.

Daniel from Newark, New Jersey (a Gold Member) asks: I want to build a Microsoft Access database solution for my company. I've got 30 employees, about half of whom would need to use the database. I'm the only person who would be making design changes. I heard that there's something called the Runtime Edition that I can install so I don't have to pay for a copy of Office on each PC. How does that work?


Members will learn how to take extra precautions to prevent against the database application crashing. We'll see how to compile our VBA code to check for syntax errors. We'll learn how to check for common Runtime errors which are harder to detect. And we'll see some basic error handling techniques to deal with those kinds of errors.

Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault.
