Since its debut, Microsoft Access has offered businesses a simple and effective platform for line-of-business application development.  With its rapid application development philosophy, the software enables much faster development time than using traditional methods.  With the additional ability to integrate with SQL Server, Microsoft Access is a formidable platform for the development of straightforward line-of-business applications.

The primary key to a successful Access application is a well-structured database.  This can often be at odds, however, with the agile design principles offered by Access.  The easy of database changes can result in an application that quickly outgrows its roots and becomes unmanageable.  As a result, it is critical to re-evaluation the database at regular intervals in the development and normalize aspects that have outgrown their initial design.

As with any rapid application development tool, 80% of the development is done very easily, while the final 20% of customizations are often more challenging in the RAD environment.  As a result, it is critical to choose a development partner with extensive Access experience in customizing the environment to the target use case.  It is often necessary to leverage the VBA backend to perform advanced customizations, such as row-level drop-down dependencies and conditional stored-procedure business logic.  Some specific customizations may even introduce enough instability in the system that they should be avoided altogether in favor of an alternative method.  An experienced Access developer will be able to guide the project through the potential challenges and produce a successful and maintainable final product.
