Introducing New Connectors in Access: Microsoft Dynamics and Salesforce

Last November, we shared our plan to add a set of modern data connectors that will enable Office ProPlus customers to expand what is possible in their organizations.

Today, we are pleased to announce the addition of two new connectors in our portfolio: Microsoft Dynamics and Salesforce. These two connectors are rolling out to customers with Office 365 ProPlus, E3, or E5 plans.




Access includes a rich portfolio of external data connectors, among which you can find SQL Server, Azure SQL, Excel, SharePoint, Oracle, and more.

The new MS Dynamics and Salesforce data connectors in Access can be used in a variety of scenarios, supporting importing from, or linking to external data sources.






Extending the portfolio of external data connectors enables new scenarios for Access customers who wish to integrate line of business data from multiple data sources into one coherent solution in Access, and we will continue to release connectors to connect modern data sources to Access.

Does this include reading and writing from Dynamics 365 Business financials?

It's important to note that these new data connectors do NOT require installation of ODBC drivers, Access comes with the needed drivers built in, allowing you to deploy these solutions without them. 


I encourage you to join us on Thursday September 21st at the Spain AccessUserGroups.org meeting when Mauricio Orodnez, group program manager for Microsoft Access, will demo these new features in Spanish. For more info you can visit our page at https://accessusergroups.org/espana/event/access-espana1-2017-09-21/ (details will be up soon). The meeting will be in Spanish, hope you can join us!


The new Access Dynamics connector allows users to connect to Dynamics CRM (Customer Engagement), and not Dynamics Financial.
