Access Database Programming
♦ Toshiba hired Mr. Fennell in 2009 to improve our financial planning model by setting up Access databases to process the huge amount of data we deal with on daily and monthly basis.
♦ Mr. Fennell not only understood our business needs well & reflected them in Access, but his work was done so accurately that 4+ years later, we’re still using his work. He also did a great job training all our individuals to maintain the databases and make changes as our business needs evolved over the years.

Benefits of Using Microsoft Access
Microsoft Access comes included in most of the Microsoft Office Suites.
- Thus, there is usually no separate charge, no monthly charges, no annual charges to use Microsoft Access; you already own it and no DBA (Database Administrator) is needed.
- This makes it the most affordable relational database by Microsoft.
- While there is a free version of SQL Server, most company’s needs are too large to use the free Lite version. Typically for large companies running the pricey Enterprise versions of SQL Server, there is a rather large cost to run SQL Server, but even for many of the small to intermediate sized organizations, the cost to run SQL Server, with or without the DBA, is too great a cost, hence the use of Microsoft Access.
- Furthermore, using Microsoft Access does not require the support of IT as does a SQL Server application, and with Access there is no need for a DBA (Database Administrator), another cost savings.
- An inhouse DBA can be expensive, Access eliminates that cost.
Microsoft Access is the most scalable and easiest to use relational database by Microsoft.
- It is the only relational database by Microsoft that comes with an easy to use Graphical User Interface (GUI) – Which is “Forms” based (Point-N-Click user interface).
- That is the single most important reason firms use Access instead of the free Lite version of SQL Server, the easy to use point-n-click interface, no programming experience needed, that Microsoft Access has to offer.
- This interface is so useful that people will integrate SQL Server with Access, just to use the Point-N-Click Graphical User Access Forms Interface.
- They will still house the data tables, stored procedures, etc., in the SQL Server environment, using Access just for the GUI.
- Microsoft Access has the super useful and yet amazingly powerful Forms Interface, making it a true point-n-click graphical user interface.
- SQL Server lacks this most important feature, ease of use.
- SQL Server is all about raw horsepower & data management.
Microsoft Access is the most affordable database by Microsoft (It often comes included in Microsoft Office for no additional charge, based on your organization’s version(s) of Microsoft Office)
- Microsoft Access is so affordable and easy to use that it allows any organization, of any size, and even individuals to quickly and affordably build powerful Microsoft relational databases.
- Unlike SQL Server which can be rather expensive, Access comes part of the Microsoft Office Suite of Applications, including Excel and Outlook, so if you already have Microsoft Office Professional, there is no monthly or annual fee separate from your annual Microsoft Office license accounts.
- SQL Server and Azure have monthly fees and additional costs and they can really add up. The larger you are the more you pay.
4. Ease of Use
Microsoft Access is so simple and easy to use – Anyone can run it (Intuitive Forms based GUI)
- Access is so powerful and simple it can run itself, no employee needed.
- If you like, we can have your various Microsoft Access and Excel applications run themselves, based on the time and day of the computer clock, no human needed.
- Microsoft Access Forms are an intuitive Graphical User Interface and it allows anyone to quickly and confidently run the Access database without knowing anything at all about Access programming or a stitch of VBA programming. Just click the button on the Access form, done. The Access point-n-click GUI makes this possible.
