Access Database Developer Resources


Tools, Add-ins and VBA code modules that reduce build times and/or add functionality that would otherwise take days or weeks to develop and debug, are a valuable resource for both professional and serious Access Database developer alike. Here we will offer various resources, tools and apps you can download and use. Some tools and resources we will provide free of charge, whilst others will be available for purchase.

Trusted Folder Creator

This app was developed so clients could avoid the hassle of adding trusted folder locations manaully, using the Microsoft Access Database built-in Trust Center. Click here or the folder image to download this FREE App. Extract the 'TrustFolder' app from the zip file into the folder that you want added as a trusted folder location, and then double click the file. For more information about the TrustFolder app visit our Trusted Folder FAQ Page.


User Access Control & Logging Add-In

The Microsoft Access database ACCDB format introduced many advancements over the earlier MDB format. Unfortunately, it also removed User & Group permissions, making it now difficult to control user's access to specific objects (forms/reports) and data, without undertaking significant VBA coding to reinstate user control functionality. Our 'Access User Control Add-in' for Access Database lets you add back user access control, and if required user logging, in any exiting Access Database, with minimal effort, just an hour or two work, and with only a basic understanding of the Access Database design interface.
