I'm assuming that you are not an Access expert so I'm not sure why you would blame Access. No platform is perfect for all application types. Perhaps you haven't been able to remove your spreadsheet cap and so haven't really understood the power that a relational database offers. I'm a professional developer and I have many years of experience with mainframe platforms prior to when I adopted Access in the mid 90's and I've never wanted to go back. I've developed hundreds of databases for large companies such as Readers' Digest, United Technologies(Hamilton Sunstrand, Pratt & Whitney, and Sikorsky), and Clairol as well as mom and pop operations. Some of them have hundreds of concurrent users (those have SQL Server BE's) and a number have been in operation for 10 + years and have databases with millions of records.Access has too many issues for it to be practical and reliable is why I say this.
This statement is inappropriate and just wrong. A few members here have devoted hours of their FREE time to help you. Good, solid advice has been offered and yet somehow you declare yourself enough of an expert to judge the help you have received as “not really constructive”.Since no real constructive help has been offered on here this will be the best way.
Presumably you won't ask for any more help from those of us with apps that have run successfully for decades so we won't have to worry about it.What good is bad coding that eventually fails? This is the case from you so called experts on here so no thank you for that. Waste someone else's time.
I am reminded of that great line from the Christian Bale Batman trilogy. Why do we fall down? So we can pick ourselves up and carry on. If you expect us to write perfect code for you, remember that we are starting from imperfect knowledge of your problem. If you seriously expect perfect results from imperfect knowledge, you are living in a dream world.What good is bad coding that eventually fails?
Given that we can only exchange vague notions of what you need using English without actually being able to examine your business processes, you should reasonably expect that what we offer can only get close to what you need. We are not here to write your app for you. We are volunteers who genuinely want to help people. But when you talk as you do, you make it sound like you expected a ready-to-go app to be built for you, and that is not merely unrealistic, it verges on stupidity. You can't even purchase over-the-counter software that works perfectly. Just watch how often they release patches and new versions. Heck, we are running on a Microsoft platform. How often do you get notified of new Windows patches? (Answer: They come out about every two weeks.)This is the case from you so called experts on here so no thank you for that.
You mean, like you wasted ours? Trust me, the feeling of the need to put some distance between us is mutual.Waste someone else's time.
Oh oh, call on me! I know it!!Fork?
...I give up
According to an old joke, I believe he is seeking to settle the dispute out of court.Go F**K Yourselves!!!
Well going on past form, he will be back asking someone to sharpen it for him, despite having successfully sharpened a pencil some 5 years back. roflmaoI wonder what happens when he realizes he has to SHARPEN a pencil or it stops working? Will he get rid of it because its broken?
