Connecting to MS Access MDB as an external data source
I think it would be nice to be able to access any database with an ODBC connection, but at least connect to MS Access natively would be great.
Still no mdb/accdb support in LightSwitch? :(

You could, alternatively, migrate your Access database to SQL Server (Express) and then use LightSwitch against that. It is even possible to keep the existing Access front-end if you are not replacing it entirely with LightSwitch.

I agree with you! Native mdb/accdb connection was propagated by Microsoft on the beta VSLS websites some time ago. Gave you 3 votes.
