Database Preparation: Easy Access

BY ROLAND O. PEPIN

I am amazed you would consider an article on setting up a database in Access worthy of your publication (“Building a Database From Scratch,” JofA , Nov.99, page 63). Such a task is just a little more demanding than finding one’s way home from work.

To quote from the article, “Only a few years ago you had to be unusually skilled in database technology to construct a database from scratch.”

Not true! An hour with a software publication was all that was required, even in “the old days.” Completing schedule D of the 1040 tax form is far more challenging.

Perhaps I should submit an article on using a 10-key adding machine.
