Access Studio is an Access add-in which was created by Chris Arnold of SME Data Solutions

The main purpose of Access Studio is to add much of the functionality of SQL Server Management Studio to Access apps.

Chris Arnold demonstrated his Access Studio application to the online Access Europe user group on 6 April 2022.

Further details of that session are available on the Access Europe website. See Topic Outline
