IPEDS data in Access

I just learned that IPEDS data is now available in an Access file format. I plan on looking at this data more over the next few weeks since it appears that it contains all data rather than needing to locate and download various subsets to get what you need. It appears there is a single file for separate years (2011-), but I’m thinking I have a way of combining the files that shouldn’t be too difficult. I’ll know more once I have a chance to examine things in more detail. Here’s a link to where the data is available:
