Microsoft Access Database Templates – Some Are Even Free!

With the latest version of Microsoft Access database (2016) and following on with tradition, Microsoft provides a selection of free Access templates and these can be found via a new database file action where thumbnails are available to get you started.

Quite a few of the standard templates are reasonable and they do require more custom design time to at least make them more user friendly.


However, take the above ‘Tasks’ database example which created several different objects including tables, queries, forms and reports – In fact, 30 objects were generated which also included macros and a little VBA code.

Other database templates can also been found like Asset tracking, Contacts, Event management, Product inventory and Call tracker to name a few.
