Biometric Access Database

As an Access Developer, I think MS Access is one of the most flexible database products ever designed.

Although it is limited in that it is not designed to be used as a web-based database solution, I have found that this product has allowed me enormous flexibility in constructing small-scale database solutions.

I know you can’t find it in ANY books out today, but did you know it's even possible to construct biometric MS Access databases?

If there is enough interest in this post, I will reveal how this is possible in a follow-up post.

I am an Access database developer evolving to vb.net and SQL Server Express. My question is, what do you think about MS Access as an overall database product?

Don't know what you mean by Biometric Database.

Anyhow, access is a pretty amazing tool.

To get database supported gui application up and running is very quick & easy & CHEAP! Several times cheaper than VB ever was.

A lot of people bag Access, but that just tends to be ignorance of it's designed purpose or of the features it contains.

  Access is not a 'Toy'. Does a toy let you computerise a business process for 10-20% the cost of any other tool. Then modify and change it as easily.
