    Forms - Access - PowerBi —Best practices?

That input gets stored in Access, and then eventually I want to use Access data in PowerBi Online (Online not Desktop). Ideas?

    You can use the full (or runtime) version of Access on a Windows tablet.
    However, as Access is Windows only, it isn't included in any of the Office mobile apps.
    Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
