There you go again. Never taking responsibility for your OS.
I used to develop apps with Borland Paradox (DOS and Windows), and before that dBase and some Clipper. I loved Paradox for Windows - its scripting language from 1993 is probably still better and in some ways more powerful than VB. But nobody uses it. The market is MS. And Access is unsurpbutted as a query-reporting tool - except for some really pricey programs like Brio and Business Objects. Overall there is just not a Windows db-client tool anywhere near as good as MS Access for data processing. One of the nice things is you query any datasource that has an ODBC driver. I can write joins between SQL Server, Oracle, DB2, Access, Informix and Lotus Notes systems, all at once. It's slow, but it will work. And the report writer is excellent.
