Technology Workshop a Plus

BY MARC ZAWICKI

The Technology Workshop is my favorite section of the JofA . I have picked up many tips and pointers that I have been able to immediately implement. For instance, I was able to build a complete financial database and reporting system using Access and Excel.

Does the JofA have a Web site where these articles can be found? I would like to bookmark all the Technology Workshop articles for the past two or three years.

Editor’s reply. Readers can find Technology Workshop articles online by going to www.aicpa.org, scrolling down to Online Publications, and clicking on Journal of Accountancy. The first Technology Workshop, “Sharpen Spreadsheet Skills,” appeared in the October 1998 JofA .
