Distributing Microsoft Access Data and Reports in the Cloud

Take advantage of cloud computing directly from Microsoft Access. With EzUpData you can upload files directly from Access to your private web sited hosted on Microsoft Azure and SQL Server.

The files can already exist on disk such as Access databases, spreadsheets, Word documents, PDF reports, zip files, etc. They can also be files created from your database on-the-fly using your tables, queries, and reports. The data and reports can be filtered for each of your contacts so they receive files with just their information. For example, you can take an invoice report and create a web site where each contact can log in and see their invoices as HTML or PDF reports (PDF available in Access 2007 or 2010).

Private file distribution on a highly scalable platform. That's what EzUpData brings to the Microsoft Access community.

Upload Files from Microsoft Access

From Microsoft Access, open your existing MDB, ADP, or ACCDB database containing your list of contacts and their email addresses. From the add-ins menu, launch EzUpData for Access:

Launch EzUpData from the Microsoft Access add-in ribbon

Interactive Wizard Interface

The EzUpData program is a Wizard that lets you create and manage Upload Jobs. Without any programming, you can use the data and reports in your database to generate files your contacts can see from your account on the EzUpData web site.

Create an EzUpData Upload Job

  • Select your table or query with your list of email addresses
  • Specify some or all of these types of files to upload:
    • Pages from an Access report (in PDF format) with the ability to filter it for each contact
    • Data from an Access table or query with the ability to filter it for each contact
    • Existing files on disk
    • Files contained in an Attachment field
    • Files listed in a field in your table
  • Optionally set a future publish date so you can upload now for your users to see later
  • Optionally set an expiration date so the files disappear from your user's list at that time
  • Set audit options so you can document when files were uploaded to whom
  • Upload your files to EzUpData immediately, or preview it first to confirm what your users will see before they do

Your job specifications are automatically saved in your database so you can edit, duplicate, and run them again in the future. You can also delete from the EzUpData site, all the files previously uploaded by the job. You can create an unlimited number of jobs.

Creating and Managing Groups of Email Addresses

Groups let you easily distribute identical files for multiple email addresses. Rather than using an ermail address, you can use a group name to send files that multiple users can see.

The Group Manager lets you create, edit and delete your Groups which are sets of email addresses. This mekes it easy for you to share files like an Employee Handbook to everyone in the Employees group, then add or remove people (email addresses) from the group as necessary. Your people automatically see all the files assigned to them individually and through their group memberships in one list.

VBA Programmatic Interface for Your Access Modules

For VBA programmers, you can invoke an EzUpData function to bypass the interactive Wizard and run these jobs directly in your applications. Tie it to a button or other code to upload the files automatically.

A royalty-free EzUpData library is provided to support these VBA calls. You can distribute this with your Access databases.
