 +====== Microsoft Access Version Control Integration ======

 +{{ ::​icon.png?​nolink|}} Synchronize your Access Forms, Macros, Modules, Queries, and Reports with a version control system.

 +//This code is built and tested on Microsoft Access 2010. It will probably work in earlier versions, but YMMV.//
 +
 +The Microsoft Access code module in this project provides functions to export and import all of your Access objects to plain text files so that you can use a version control tool to track changes in these objects. For Access objects which are normally exported in <wrap sym>​UCS-2-little-endian</​wrap>​ encoding,​ the included module automatically converts to the source code to and from <​wrap sym>​UTF-8</​wrap>​ encoding during export/​import;​ this is to ensure that you don't have trouble branching, merging, and comparing in tools such as Mercurial which [[https://​www.mercurial-scm.org/​wiki/​BinaryFiles|treat any file containing 0x00 bytes as a non-diffable binary file]].
 +
 +//Note: I originated this software and hosted it on [[https://​github.com/​bkidwell/​msaccess-vcs-integration|my GitHub account]], but I no longer actively maintain it. **timabell** maintains the [[https://​github.com/​timabell/​msaccess-vcs-integration|current fork on GitHub]].//
