Access Europe – George Hepworth (Power Apps for Access Developers)

George Hepworth – Bio

George began his love affair with MS Access in the early 90’s when he was tapped to create a tracking system for the continuing education courses he and his colleagues wrote and sold. He decided that database development was more interesting than the writing side and began the transition.

Over the next 25 years, George worked in a variety of environments as a database developer focusing on Access and later, SQL Server with Access.

He authored or co-authored several books on Access and currently serves on the Administration team at Utter Access forum.

George is also active on other Access forums.

 

Topic Outline

Microsoft Access on the desktop and MS Power Apps in the browser can make a powerful team. Access connects to a wide range of data sources, from accdbs to SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle and other server based databases, including now Dataverse. PowerApps connect to them all, and more.

Putting a rich VBA-enabled Access Front End on the desktop and a fast, flexible Power Apps interface in the browser enables developers to provide tools covering both in-house and remote work.

In this presentation, George will provide an overview of the hybrid model for an application involving:

  • A “cloud” data source
  • A desktop interface in Access
  • A browser/smart device interface in Access

Time permitting, George will discuss some of the issues you might confront when implementing a PowerApps application, and possible approaches to resolving them.
