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.
