Set up and configure Access Services 2010 for web databases in SharePoint Server 2013

APPLIES TO: yes2013 no2016 no2019 noSharePoint Online

Access Services 2010 is a service application that allows users to modify and publish in SharePoint 2013 an Access web database that was previously created in SharePoint Server 2010.

The Access client is not required to use the published web database. However, the Access client is required to make any changes to the database structure.

Set up SQL Server Reporting Services

You can update existing reports in an Access web database, but these reports require the installation and configuration of SQL Server Reporting Services Mode for SharePoint and the content database must be running SQL Server 2012. For more information, see Install Reporting Services SharePoint Mode for SharePoint 2013 in SQL Server Books Online.
