270+ Ways To Create Better Microsoft Access Applications

VIENNA, VA – November 3, 2008 — FMS is pleased to announce Total Access Analyzer 2007 is now shipping for Microsoft Office Access 2007. Microsoft Access is part of the Microsoft Office System and remains the world's most popular database product. Total Access Analyzer is the world's most popular Microsoft Access product winning every Best Access Add-in Award since 1994. This is the ninth major release of Total Access Analyzer since its debut in 1992.

Imagine Avoiding Crashes Before You Ship

The popularity of Total Access Analyzer is its ability to help Access users and developers improve their applications, avoid errors that can cause their solutions to crash, and learn best practices to increase their skills. By using Total Access Analyzer when taking over an existing application, during development, and before deployment as part of one's quality assurance process, developers can avoid embarrassing mistakes and improve consistency and performance.

Total Access Analyzer examines each Microsoft Access database to provide detailed documentation of individual objects and their relationships to each other. Comprehensive code analysis of VBA module code and macros is also performed. A powerful search features lets you find any string across all the properties, macros, and modules. Over 350 presentation quality reports are available with a wide variety of customization, sorting, and filtering options.

Most importantly, Total Access Analyzer detects over 270 ways to avoid errors, apply best practices, and improve performance. By leveraging our years of experience and customer feedback, FMS has created the most powerful system for diagnosing Microsoft Access applications. For instance, Total Access Analyzer can detect broken references to tables, fields, forms, reports, macros, and VBA code that will cause the database to crash as soon as they're encountered. It finds unused objects (tables, queries, forms, and reports), macros, classes, procedures, variables, constants, etc. to help developers get rid of unnecessary and old work. Advanced analysis is also performed to detect inconsistent field definitions across tables, duplicate SQL definitions, etc. Multi-level object and code relationships are presented with three advanced hierarchical diagrams showing application flow, data flow, and object containership.

Microsoft Access users, developers, and consultants of all levels rely on Total Access Analyzer to deliver great solutions. "Total Access Analyzer is an amazing product that I’ve relied on and recommended for years," said Sal Ricciardi Programming Writer for Microsoft Corporation. "It’s a huge time saver."

New Features and Support for Access 2007

Total Access Analyzer 2007 adds many enhancements such as support for Microsoft Office Access 2007 and its new database format, field types, properties, macros, and VBA syntax. A revamped, sleek user interface takes advantage of the new Office 2007 and Vista look and feel. Twenty-four new reports bring the total to 353, and reports can now be exported to Adobe PDF, XPS, HTML, rich text, and snapshot formats. New recommendations include ways to take advantage of Access 2007 features, detection of duplicate SQL strings across queries, forms and reports, finding old VBA syntax, and improper use of Exit commands in code. A variety of other features were added to make Total Access Analyzer the most powerful diagnostic tool for Microsoft Access databases.

"Total Access Analyzer reveals issues that every Microsoft Access developer should know and follow to improve their databases," said Luke Chung, President and founder of FMS. "In these challenging economic times, a detailed analytic tool like Total Access Analyzer reduces mistakes, leverages existing skills, trains people to learn Best Practices, and provides results that would be nearly impossible to replicate manually. It should be incorporated into everyone's quality assurance process because if it doesn't pass Total Access Analyzer's review, it's not ready to ship. We find it indispensable for our own Access development efforts."

Total Access Analyzer 2007 is available immediately from FMS for $299. Existing owners of Total Access Analyzer can upgrade for only $199. Total Access Analyzer is available via ESD and also comes with a professionally printed 164 page user manual and CD.
