The Workbench for Microsoft® Access® 2010/2007
and other versions

Microsoft Office Marketplace logo

The Workbench is a program that will help you manage your Microsoft® Access databases.   The Workbench will work out which version of Microsoft Access to open and show you who is using your database. To help with the administration of your database, you can stop new users opening the database and you can easily compact and backup your database when everyone logs off.  You can change the startup properties and compile the database from the delivery console.
