I have created a simple tool by which to gather, score, and get acceptance criteria for user stories using a Sharepoint back end and Access front-end.  Is there a simple plug-in out there that would allow me to drag and drop a completed "card" (probably represented as a report or record, right?) into kanban board columns?  So for example, I can take story #1 and put it in feature A.

Not really sure if this will work in your set-up there... (Agile Scrum, Sharepoint, kanban board columns...)
...as it is not really clear what a "card" is, ...
But this is a popular Drag and Drop utility for MS Access...

Most project management systems are web-based, and you're not going to find anything that will "plug-and-play" for something like that in Access.

You _might_ (and I strongly emphasize "might") be able to create a VBA routine that could upload to a kanban board (or other project management systems), but that would be entirely dependent on the system you're interacting with. If they offer some sort of API or SDK that would allow interaction, then Access _might_ be able to do that. If it cannot, then you could always create a .NET DLL that could accept input from Access, and then interact with the API or SDK.

Investigate Scott's post.
Because I was not familiar with the technologies you wee using, ...I simply posted a link to a popular Drag and drop utility,... FWIW...

You gave me what I needed to know - which is that there isn't an easy,  cheap way  to do this.
