Preface

Preface

Access really is an amazing product. Its power is vast, and yet its maintenance is low. In fact, in most installations it sits on the desktop and is maintenance-free. It’s flexible enough to be used by one person or to run an entire company. It’s a rapid application development (RAD) tool that outshines other such tools (such as Visual Basic) in time to development and ease of use.

Access is also a complete database application system. It incorporates both the back-end and front-end elements of a database, thereby eliminating the need to use two products to get your work done. Even so, its flexibility allows an Access database file to be just a back end or just a front end. Access can control data in external database systems such as SQL Server and Oracle.
