Microsoft Access is 30 this year!

The first version was shipped on 28 October 1992 and released to the public on 13 Nov 1992



Karl Donaubauer (MVP) has been busy celebrating the 30th anniversary in several ways including:

a) a massive Access birthday cake at the AEK developers conference held in Germany on 23/24 Oct 2022


b) recording a special song on LinkedIn:   The Microsoft Access Song

I also have a long article A Trip down Memory Lane celebrating the history of Access with details of all versions released over the last 30 years

May Access continue to thrive long into the future

Here's to many more years of this under-appreciated but amazing application.
