Updates for Total Visual Agent

Total Visual Agent was originally named Total Access Agent, but renamed Total Visual Agent when it was also used by the Visual Basic community to manage the Jet/Access databases included in their applications.

Product History

For two decades, Total Visual Agent was released with every major Microsoft Access version adding many enhancements along the way.
