Professional Controls

Give your Access applications a professional polish to differentiate your work! Total Access Components includes 30 controls to enhance your user interface and simplify development.

Popup Menu for selecting options in Microsoft Access database applications
Right mouse click pop-up menus with fonts, colors, and icons
Outlook style icon menus

Create More Powerful Forms

Design forms that automatically resize to the user's workspace and give them the ability to adjust portions of the form with an interactive splitter bar.

  • Microsoft Access Form ResizerForm Resizing including font point size scaling so text is still readable if the form gets smaller
  • Form Splitter Bar to let users resize portions of your form vertically or horizontally
  • Tab Strips on the top, left, right or bottom
  • Custom Cursors to replace the standard arrow and hourglass
  • Timer control to add multiple timer events to a form

Total Access Components includes an extensive tutorial database with source code containing working examples of every control. On-line help and a professionally printed 158 page manual are included.

Free and Easy Redistribution

Pricing and Versions

The latest version supports Microsoft Access 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, and the 32 and 64 bit versions of Access 2010, 2013 and 2016. An older version is available for Access 95 and 97.

32 Versus 64 Bit Versions

Since ActiveX controls are either 32 or 64-bit dependent, the controls from the 32-bit version can be added to your MS Access forms and reports for use by Access 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, and the 32-bit versions of Access 2010, 2013 and 2016.

The 64-bit version of Access 2010, 2013 and 2016 requires 64-bit ActiveX controls and cannot use the 32-bit version. When the 64-bit version of Total Access Components is installed on a machine, it can insert those 64-bit controls. It can also automatically use databases containing the 32-bit controls without any manual changes.
