Just relocated back to my native SoCal from Florida. Been in the I.T. sector since '96 and have been using Access since '94. Worked for family for the last 22 years, establishing the I.T. dept. then moving onto data management. I have limited experience with MySQL, SQL Server, Visual FoxPro 5, and trying to learn Oracle. Our family business was a supplier of electromechanical components that supported the commercial aviation industry and limited military support. I'm glad to have found this forum as I constantly run into challenges and find it difficult to "talk shop" while I'm working. Looking forward to learning as well as contribute to this forum.
