    Question Unanswered: How to get great at Access

    I have been working with Access for a couple of years now and while I have gotten good at deconstructing and reworking existing database to get it to do what I want I really want to move to the next level and be able to create dynamic useful databases for anything I can think of. The question is where do I start? There is so much info online that it can be overwhelming.

    a young lady who had studied piano as a child finally was old enough, and took a trip to new york city

    "excuse me," she asked the nearest policeman when she got off the bus, "can you tell me how to get to carnegie hall?"

    "sure," said the policeman, "practice, practice, practice"
