Total Access Startup User Manual Total Access Startup User Manual for Microsoft Access

Total Access Startup always launches the correct version of Access with your database regardless of how many versions of Access are installed or what Windows considers the default for MDB or ADP files. Many environments require multiple versions of Access because the cost of converting old Access databases to the latest version of Access is unnecessary. With Total Access Startup, you can maintain your investment while easily supporting new Access versions. It knows how to find the correct version of Access even if itís installed in a different directory on every machine.

At FMS, we believe documentation is critical to your ability to maximize the value of our software products. The user manual is 60 pages and fully indexed to make it easy to learn about Total Access Startup, preparing for deployment, startup options, and troubleshooting.
