Access 2013 and UWP apps

Source link: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsapps/en-US/e6b0aa50-0f53-4528-9820-640fb02f2601/access-2013-and-uwp-apps?forum=wpdevelop





Is it even possible to read data with a UWP app written with Visual Studio 2019 (C#) if that data is coming from an Access 2013 database, which is actually an Access 2002 database plunked down in Access 2013 ?

Hello,

Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

If you want to connect access directly, it is impossible to achieve. You may need to convert the access database to the supported database for example sqlite. The following picture contains the supported databases that can be direct connected.

Or you could use some rest services to connect access and then call these rest services in UWP to achieve.
