  1. Access - Dynamics 365 connection unavailable after update to ver. 1711

    Hi, I was able to link to my Dynamics 365 tables with the version 1708 (build 8431.2107) but not with the version 1711 (build 8730.2165).

    So I did a rollback to version 1708 and stopped the auto updates.
    When will be again available the Dynamics 365 connection?

    Thank you!
    Walter

      Hi Walter,
      there may have been an issue with this Office version preventing you from seeing the Dynamics connector.
      I can assure you we haven’t removed it.

      Please update to the latest version.

      Thanks,
      Michal [MSFT]

    • Bring back the support for connecting to dBASE.

      Access has always been about connecting to other data sources. Excel can still connect to dBASE files, but support for Access to connect was dropped. You can see from all the chatter, that there really is a lot of people that still use dBASE files for data transfer.

      • Include the ability to connect to new data sources such as those listed in POWER BI

        New external data sources are growing rapidly and it would be useful to keep up-to-date and have ACCESS include these new types.

          In the past 6 months we introduced 2 new modern data connectors to Access – Microsoft Dynamics and SalesForce (https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Access-Blog/Introducing-New-Connectors-in-Access-Microsoft-Dynamics-and/ba-p/100015)

          We recognize that one of Access’ core strengths is the ability to connect to external data sources, and making investments to further expand the already available rich portfolio of external data sources.

          If there are specific data sources that are interesting to you, please create a separate suggestion for them.
