If I am using Access 2016 on an Office 365 subscription do I automatically get updated to 2019? I know I will be able to download it when it is released but will I get automatically updated? I only ask as it has implications for my users on runtime 2016. It's a bit confusing as the features on the MS website that say 'new in 2019' appear to be in my current version of Access. It seems like I'm not the only one with this confusion: https://redmondmag.com/articles/2018/09/10/...old-office.aspx

My version number still starts with 16 but I think I am on 2019? How can I be sure? Obviously if i have to move everyone to runtime 2019 - a). I need to be able to download it and b). everyone will need Windows 10 (which they don't have).

Office 2019 is a perpetual licensed version of Office 365 at the end of September (a snapshot as of the end of September) and then will receive security and bug fixes, but that it, no new features.

Office 365 subscription users automatically get new features, so in fact you are moving beyond Office 2019.

As it stands right now from my understanding is they have not released a new number to distinguish 2016 from 2016, so they both return 16.0. The way to identify which one you have is by the build number.

As I understand it there will not be an MSI runtime 2019, you need to use the Office 365 runtime, see: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Do...76-91cbe3ea09c9

It's all a little confusing right now between msi, subscription, channels, bitness, ... crazy.gif

Wow. I didn’t know about the Office 365 runtime. I wonder how it adapts to Access 19 features? For example I know that standard Access 2019 doesn’t work on anything other than Windows 10 but the 365 runtime says it runs everything from Access 2010 onwards. I wonder if that means it runs Access 2019 apps as Access 2016 on Windows 7 and Access 2019 on Windows 10?

Thanks for the link and info though. You were right when you said it was confusing! I am waiting for FMS to update their Access version page and give us some clarity. smile.gif

I believe they are working on it, and trying to get a handle on all of this (which is far from straight forward).
