Total Access Components for Access 2002 Released

December 24, 2001
Vienna, VA

FMS, Inc. announced today the release of Total Access Components for Microsoft Access 2002. Total Access Components is the only collection of ActiveX controls designed specifically for Microsoft Access. Now including support for both Access 2000 and 2002 (part of Office XP), Total Access Components enhances the appearance and functionality of Access forms and reports, giving Access applications a more professional and easier-to-use interface.

Total Access Components has a collection of 27 controls include a form resizer, splitter bars, “Outlook” style menus, rotated text, bitmap animation, pop-up menus, enhanced tabs, advanced buttons, progress meters, sliders, gauges, fancy borders, spin buttons, multimedia audio and video, scrolling marquees, clocks, timers, digital displays, and a variety of other utilities to simplify programming.

“Many custom controls on the market today work in platforms such as Visual Basic, but were never designed or tested for Access and as a result don’t always work,” said Luke Chung, FMS president and founder. “Total Access Components gives Access developers the power and simplicity of custom controls to offer snazzy professional user interfaces they would otherwise not be able to achieve within Access. It can also eliminate a great deal of programming.”

"The flashiness and capabilities of some of these controls are impressive. If you want to make your work distinct from others, or you want to be well remembered by clients and get noticed, then these controls are for you,” said Matt Leigh, Independent Consultant.

Product Information

Total Access Components includes a royalty-free runtime license that allows the inclusion of its controls in distributed Access applications. Licensing is on a per developer basis.

Pricing is $199 per license, $599 for five licenses, and $1999 for 25 licenses. Upgrades from previous versions are $119. Larger quantity discounts are available by contacting FMS. Total Access Components can be purchased directly from FMS, corporate resellers, and international distributors. All FMS products offer a 30-day money back guarantee.
