Mac users have several options for using Microsoft Access on their Macs.
Microsoft Office for Mac can do the following with Microsoft Access ACCDB and MDB files:
- 2011 and 2016: Get data from an Access file into an Excel Table or Excel PivotTable
- 2011 and 2016: Use Structured Query Language (SQL) in VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) and AppleScript automation
- 2011 and 2016: Use the macro recorder to get started with code
- 2011 only: Use a graphical user interface (Microsoft Query) to generate queries and reports from Microsoft Access
- Excel 2016 users can only vote here and hope someday Microsoft will restore this essential functionality lost to cost cutting

- Interaction with Access is Read-Only. Excel for Mac can not add, delete or modify records, fields, queries, views, tables or create anything new within Access.
- Only tables and views are available from Access databases. Forms and reports in an Access database are not available to Excel for Mac.
I need all Access features. Can I run Microsoft Access on my Mac? Yes!
Microsoft Access 2016 is available as a stand-alone product. You will need to have Microsoft Windows installed on your Mac either in Apple's Boot-Camp or in a virtual machine (Parallels or VMware). Using a virtual machine allows you to run Wndows and Windows applications simultaneously with your Mac OS apps. I recommend at least 16 gigabytes of RAM for running a virtual machine on your Mac.
