    Unanswered: Display Access Tables in a form

    Hi,

    I am looking for a way for users of my DB to view, append, delete, and edit records without having to navigate through all of my tables, which are linked to each other via many different IDs (e.g. an ID for a device, an ID for an operating profile, etc.).

    Would this be easy to do using forms in MS Access? (I would like to do this as a prototype).

    Eventually, I would like to create a standalone frontend in dev c++ (because I do not have access to Visual Basic .net or Visual c++). How would I go about doing this (which controls would I use, any tips, etc.)

    Thanks.

    Building the form(s) would be relatively easy ... Your real work is going to be managing the relationships between tables. As to your last question: Are you asking how to in Access or in your C++ environment?
    Back to Access ... ADO is not the way to go for speed ...

    I am assuming that Access would be easier, so I may as well create a prototype in Access first. However, my main goal is to find an access-independent way to run my simulation (right now I'm using excel VBA )
