Run Access on an Android tablet with 2013 runtime possible

Does anyone know if you can run an Access 2013 database on an Android with 2013 runtime file installed?  It would be used for data entry only.

I'm pretty sure that's a non-starter, as I don't believe that Access is even among the Office Live https://office.live.com/start/default.aspx offerings.

The MS Remote Desktop Client (RD Client) is very good and could be used to get an Android phone/tablet to connect to a terminal services environment.

Or forget Android and get a Surface 3 tablet.  That you could install the run-time on.

As Nick has suggested, you cannot install Windows applications on the Android platform, and the Access Runtime (and retail, for that matter) are purely Windows-based.

As Nick said, RDS is the only way to do this. I've used SplashTop on my Android tablet, and it works well enough. I believe Microsoft has an Android-specific RDS client out now, but of course that generally takes some configuration and such. There are others, like the old standard VNC and TeamViewer (which is NOT free for commercial use). Some of these suffer from performance issues, however. Splashtop was the best in that category, at least in my very limited review.
