MS Access Version History Tracking

What is the MS Access Version History Tracking

The MS Access Version History Tracking sample database enables one to easily log the version history of the database including Major and Minor Builds while logging what changes occurred between each Minor build.  You can drop this into your solution and be up and running in no time!

Over the years, I have tried all sort of version tracking approaches:

  • version number in the file name
    • Mean you need to update your launcher/links every time
  • date/time stamps
    • What do you do if you need to release multiple updates on the same day?!

and to date this is the best:

  • Your file name never changes
  • Everything is database driven (tables, forms)
  • unlimited
    • enter as many versions as you please


Below is a mockup About Form to illustrate displaying the database Version No.  This could be integrated very easily in a menu or any other form/report of your choosing.


This is the data entry form for keeping track of the database versions.  Simply enter your Major and Minor build numbers and then list all the changes that were implemented.
