4 years ago I had written a TechNet Guru Award in the SharePoint category for writing an article on 'SharePoint Online: A no-code Solution to Create and Customize Access Service app using Access 2013'. Now I am going to migrate this Access App to PowerApps.  There is some urgency when it comes to migrating Access Apps because Microsoft has already stopped creation of new Access-based apps in SharePoint Online one June 2017 and will shut down any remaining apps by April 2018.
