        Fully agree with everything here Mark.
        MS Access seems to be losing Microsoft's interest. The product is not understood by laypeople and frowned upon by many developers as some sort of toy.
        It's a fairly big jump to .net development, especially for one person consultants.
        MS Access could be a very compelling bridge for a lot of "departmental" and "one person" developers out there.
        Microsoft could also do a better job of marketing MS Access. Any time I go to an Office365 site, MS Access is not even visible unless you start clicking through several pages to finally find it. (Is this a hint from Microsoft)?
        I realize MS Access has always been the bastard child of Office, but please give it a bit more love and attention. I have developed so many MS Access applications that utilize Outlook, Word, and Excel that it's clear to me that, without MS Access, these other office products would be diminished.
        And again, everything that Mark said.

          I really miss ADP! But I am encouraged by the few ODBC improvements I've seen, such as easier re-linking, etc.
          But could you PLEASE, somehow, re-introducing (through ODBC or other method) the ability to use stored procedures in forms, with arguments. (Just like ADP did)?

                    I agree! I have several applications that are all ticking time boms...
                    ADP was fantastic and allowed MS Access to scale to a large number of users and work with very large datasets.
                    I'm still baffled why Microsoft dropped this functionality.
                    Sure, it may not be the best choice for applications that belong in the Enterprise, N-tiered world, but there is a very useful space for ADP.
                    Furthermore, I see no technical reason why Microsoft needed to remove this capability.
                    Please give it back!
