New in Access 2016—Large Number

Add Large Number field to local tables

Large Number (BigInt)—now a supported data type—provides additional analytical capability and deepens the integration experience when users are importing/linking BigInt data. When creating new local tables or editing existing ones, Access now allows users to add fields that store BigInt numbers.

Turn on/off Large Number (BigInt) support for linked/imported tables

Customers specifically asked for the ability to import BigInt columns and link to tables with BigInt columns in a native way. We added an option for users to turn on/off support for Large Number in the current database. Turning Large Number support on allows users to import from and link to tables with BigInt columns, and have them represented in Access in a Large Number format.
