Having participated in the review for a couple of months, I have to say that the next version (2016) of Access is not all that different from the current version (2013). That said, if you are not a fan of the "washed out" look of 2013, you might be somewhat happier with those options.

No 64-bit version? Bummer, because I use Access as a front end to SQL Server and use Excel 64-bit with PowerPivot.

I just got that old question, "Is it true that Access is going away?" today. I'm tempted to forward this link to them to show that Access is still being worked on.

Hello

I just don't do enough to afford another monthly bill myself ... I just do this for something to pass the time with.

Are there any new features revealed in 2016? It doesn't seem like there are many changes from 2007-2010-2013. Some very minor UI stuff, but overall it seems pretty much the same. It seems that Access in particular could get some great upgrades - a new chart engine, bug fixes like the eternal flickering, etc. The rest of office doesn't always have a clear path to improvement. Word is a word processor...what else should it do besides what it already can?

As a joke, jwild, this one would be funny if it weren't for the fact that some poor soul might take it seriously.

Obviously, Microsoft CAN'T "kill" VBA without killing their entire Office business.

Or maybe this is just a sarcastic way of pointing out how absurd the rumors about the demise of Office are?
