How to Activate My Access Accountby Ray Padgett
To use the full version of Microsoft Access, you have to activate your account. This confirms that you have purchased the program and it reduces software piracy. Activating your Access account is simple and will get the full version working on your computer. You will need an active Internet connection.
Open Microsoft Access.
Select "Help" from the "File" tab.
Type in your product key. It will be on the case of the Access CD if you purchased a physical version or in your email if you downloaded the product.
Click "Activate Using the Internet."
Click "Done" when the activation confirmation screen pops up.
