Access Services in SharePoint 2010 or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Access 2010

Like most .NET developers I had looked as Access as more of a file format than an application, something from the past.

So enters Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 Access Services, for me this changes the game. For those who don’t know this technology, you can create an Access database locally on your PC then publish it to SharePoint. Tables become SharePoint lists, macros become workflows and forms well become forms. Access becomes a RAD tool to create data driven SharePoint sites.
