My name is Sandy and I am based in County Durham. I started learning about databases using Smartware in 1991. I started my journey to becoming a "power user" with the launch of Access 97. I have since developed several sophisticated apps to handle the New Product Development process and associated data. I've re-engineered a legacy Access product specifications database which had been "loosing" records and taking 60 sec to retrieve a single record across the network (solved by establishing referential integrity, deletion of orphan files, use of indexes, compaction and split architecture). For simplicity, I try to avoid VBA, though have on occasion borrowed code to enable Access to do what the IT detractors said it couldn't (e.g. associating and displaying photos way beyond the 2GB limit).

I love the way I can use Access to pull and associate all the data I need to do my job into the one palace to simplify, error proof and automate tasks.
I love the way that I can query the data to reveal and solve the company's problems.
I also love mountain biking.

I've joined Access World Forums as I am looking to develop a commercial application.
