As part of the United Way’s Day of Caring, I went into Seattle today and did some work for a non-profit counseling center… specifically creating an Access system for them…. a few tables, 3 forms, and a bunch of analysis queries and reports all around stats…
Great stuff…. helping out a non-profit, but it was my first time building anything in Access in ages…. I used to do it all the time as part of past jobs, etc…. but even doing VBA is enough of change for me that I felt really rusty. Overall though, I got the work done and that is the key to a database tool like Access. Personally, while I was longing for SQL Server and VB.NET, I saw a lot of features in Access (even Access 2000) that you just can’t find in VB.NET (or C#)…
What do you think? Are there development features of Access that would be good to have in your ‘professional’ development tools? Use the comments/feedback link to let me know your thoughts!
