Hi All, Anybody had a play with Ms Flow https://flow.microsoft.com/ and got it to work with Access?

I don't know much about it, but I do think it's more for Sharepoint, PowerApps and the like than for Access.

Hi George, Thanks for the post. Ahh that makes sense. I get it now it's more about cloud service to cloud service interaction. If you’re not setup for sharepoint/Azure etc looks like it can write to onedrive/local excel files which I suppose could be used as the mechanism to link/import the data to Access.

Thanks for the push in the right direction

I just cruised their site. They list 152 connectors, but nothing for MS Access.

I suppose you could think of a way to get at data in, say, SharePoint lists, from both Flow and Access. Or Excel sheets. I just don't think that's a very robust data model. For a few smaller applications it might be feasible, though.
