I'm an oldie at database programming having begun my computer explorations with dBase II back in 1981. Cruisin' right along for years thru dBase III and Clipper, but got stumped when Windows and Access 97 took control. Now I'm trying to remedy my backwardness by experimenting with Access 97 and then will jump forward to the latest version of Access. Forums of users have been helpful in many other areas, such as web design, ecommerce, web hosting, and what I've seen so far here bodes well.
