Well, I’m in the final stages of tidying up and polishing the client tracking database so that it’s all shiny and such. Just about time to let the admins loose on it to see if they can break it (or if it needs yet more features…whee).
So, to recap, over the course of about 3 weeks, I’ve A) started from knowing little more about Access than how to access it, B) read a bunch of online tutorials, C) downloaded and poked around in a template and discovered myriad ways to break it and D) used the shattered remains of the broken template (very little remains of the original except a few forms and their related macros) to reassemble something that will capture several pages of application information, take “orders” for when our clients come in to access our services, spit out reports on anything from orders by date and customers by head of household…all without having the slightest clue what in dog’s name I was doing.
Hah! All your database are belong to me! What you say? Too soon!
God, I’m such a geek.
