Since 1995, Total Access Detective has saved Access users and
developers weeks of time on Microsoft Access development projects by
automating the process of pinpointing everything that changed between
databases and objects. Here's how:
"Final Verdict: I am once again quite confident in putting my stamp
of approval on this tool. If you are in a situation
in which you quickly need to identify all the
differences between multiple databases, FMS' Total
Access Detective will make short work of the job at
hand! ... A very nice, easy to use and most importantly, effective and thorough tool
Total Access Detective – Review

Conclusion: Awesome! It is not often we can so
enthusiastically recommend Tools for Access. But the
Access Analyzer and the Total Access Detective are simply the
best tools of their kind I have ever used. You can produce Access
databases of the highest professional quality by using them. They
make you look good. They are worth every penny you invest in them.
The Two Best Tools for Microsoft Access I Have Ever Used)

Total Access Detective, you can easily compare any two objects in one database
or any two databases with each other. This is extremely beneficial in a
multi-developer environment where different developers are making changes to
different database objects. Total Access Detective assists you with the process
of merging changes made by multiple developers.

one I use, when I have little idea of what I'm working on (IOW someone else's
database) is Total Access Detective

Your Total Detective saved the day as my employee
imported the wrong table to the server. We used Total Access
Detective to detect the changes the next day when the issue
was discovered, and were able to rectify the situation which
would otherwise be unsolvable without this tool.
Total Access Detective saves the day again! I was puzzled why a feature that
worked 3 months ago was no longer working in the latest version. I couldn’t
figure it out. I then decided to run a comparison on the forms and the answer
was right there in the module code. I had different code in the On Current event
which is somewhere I didn’t think to look. Great tool. Thank you.

Thank you so much for going the extra mile for us Friday. We
received the software Saturday, found the differences between the two databases
and got the revised version to our client Monday morning.. could not have done
it without you or the software!
Pete Prados, Apex IT Solutions
Yikes! My client's last list of change requests included a
couple of issues I knew I'd already addressed. Sure enough, their latest version
and mine were out of sync, and additional changes had been made in each. Total
Access detective saved days of painstaking work. Just as important, I was
confident that the resulting version of the application was 100% correct.

Total Access Detective is well worth every penny, it will
quickly pay for itself through savings in time and effort.
- Tom Cryan, Denver Access User Group product review
This awesome development tool lets you track differences
between database versions…I highly recommend Total Access Detective,
particularly if your work involves making changes over a period of time.

This add-in will save you many hours of difficulty when
managing any Access application with multiple developers.
