    What is the future for MS Access? Will it be replaced with another
    development tool and bundled with MS Office? I have heard rumors of it be
    discontinued?

    The rumors are false. MS have devoted major resources to the next
    version of Access, and there are lots of changes in store. Access is
    already bundled with Office, in the Professional edition.

    We've been hearing such rumours for years. This is absolutely
    wrong. There are more folks at Microsoft working on the upcoming
    version of Access then they've had for any previous version.

    See A discussion of what's new in Access 12
    http://blogs.msdn.com/access/ for some discussion on a few
    enhancements.

    Only since Version 1.0. <CHUCKLE> I suspected back then that it was
    supporters of some competing database products who were planting those
    rumors. That could still be a possibility.

    (As the rumors have been wrong, ever since those first ones.)

    The first rumors labeled Access as "the database that wouldn't make the
    grade." Now it is, by far, the largest selling database product ever, and
    Microsoft would have to be awfully dumb (which they definitely are not) to
    drop the worlds best-selling database software!
