If anything will make me feel like a caveman in front of a computer, it's working in Access. I feel like I'm mentally swimming through peanut butter when I'm trying to write queries in it. My feeble mind has been woefully unsuccessful at plumbing its esoteric depths.

Microsoft should have called it "inAccess," as in "inAccessible."

I like Access and I'm pretty good at it. But I also do VBScripting, so I can do some pretty cool stuff with forms and such.

I'm no expert, but I consider myself pretty decent at most things software-related--especially given my (lack of) experience and training.

But Access...Access is a different story for me. It makes me dumb.

It's something you have to do for a while before it clicks.

In that case, I'll keep plugging away. Hopefully the wall breaks before my head does. :smile:

I like MS Access. I too had to warm up to it. I've learned a squinch bit of VBS myself (probably forgot it all now).
