I have built Powerapps using the Azure connection created by Access Web apps. This has allowed me to maintain all of my data going back 15 years. I just had an awful thought though. Is the Azure connecion that is the back end for MS Access going to be deleted in April?
Hi @Drrickryp I strongly suggest migrating all your data to Azure SQL Database.
I was also a heavy user of Access Web Apps, but Azure is great and have not looked back.
Here are some references:
Thanks for the advice but isn't the data already in SQL Azure since it is the back end for Web Apps? I have been using the data stored in the Web App by using the SQL server connection information as described in https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Discussion/PowerApp-Connect-to-access-web-app-data/td-p/...
@Drrickryp, I am not an expert and not from Microsoft, but my understanding is that yes the back end for AWA is Azure, but that AWA will at some point (April) be discontinued, which also means that the Azure back end will be switched off.
Rather than risk this, I have migrated all my data to a new instance of Azure which is under my control.
Hence the links above as to how to do this.
