All that cross-posting only encourages talk at cross-purposes. Every full-time Access developer I ever met had difficulty not mentioning the name and the word corruption in the same sentence. None of the customer apps had a problem with that since they were small enough to resort to paper when there was a problem. But when a file-based engine doesn't log, the important question is hardly one of too many users. It was okay for my family tree and personal tax accounts since by my definition since I preferred to think of those as fuzzy apps. Funny, once I started to say no to packaged goods like Windows, all my Access problems went away. I suppose it will be amusing to watch Google repeat the errors of history when they come up with "googleaccess" (I'm sure they will). Received on Thu Jan 24 2008 - 23:34:39 CET
