So yet again today i realize another reason why I don’t like MS:Access. Don’t get me wrong it has its place and its uses but for the most part they are few and far between.
Having run into a problem with a client needing me to automate the execution of a macro in an existing Access application (that resides on a fileserver) and automate the emailing of the results to a third party, I’m frustrated. It really gets on my nerves when I have to come in and try and make this stuff work. Though it is fun sometimes, when it involves an Access application that is rarely the case.
I won’t go into the goary details of it all, at least not today, I just wanted to mention how absolutely irritating it is to see MS:Access being put to use in such mission critical applications as the one I am having to work with.
