FMS released its new Total Access Admin tool for
Microsoft Access. The software lets you perform tasks such as closing a
database for maintenance or backups when other users have it open and
identifying workstations or users who are corrupting a database.
To use Total Access Admin, you start the program and
select a database. You can then do the following:
Prevent new connections to the database in order to
prepare a database for backups, compact/repair, or other maintenance
Automatically disconnect idle users. Logging users out
of a database after a specified period of inactivity makes it easier to
close the database for maintenance.
Identify dropped or suspect connections. A dropped
connection to an Access/Jet database can lead to corruption. The Total
Access Admin tool finds workstations or users who have left the database
in a suspect state, helping you track down corruption issues.
Send messages to application users. You can communicate
in real time with your application users by typing in a message; it
appears in every instance of your application. This can be helpful when
you're sending update or maintenance/log-out messages, FMS says.
Total Access Admin supports any Access/Jet database
created with Access 97, Access 2000, or Access XP. It works as a
standalone program and must be installed on a system that has Access 97,
2000, or XP installed. The program does not support ADP/SQL Server
A single license will cost US $199, a five-user pack will
