    Unanswered: access front end

    i am almost finished building the front end for an application to manage restaurants. i am developing the front end with access vba, and intend to use sql server as a back end for the service. i just came across a group of people bashing access developers on a different site. i have several restaurants interested in using the service, and believe that the service should be very successfull (i have a very specific customer base that is currently not being targeted). the access component would not be a multiuser application. before i distribute the app i would appreciate any input. am i getting myself into trouble using access vba? should i run scared and switch to a vb.net web service?
    thanks in advance for any thoughts.

    I think an Access front-end with a SQL Server back-end is perfectly appropriate for small-to-midsize applications.

    IF......
    you create an Access Data Project, and not just an mdb file with linked tables. That may get you into trouble.
    If it's not practically useful, then it's practically useless.
