Years ago, I used Appleworks and Microsoft Works for list-making, spreadsheets, and word processing.

The tutorial disk for Appleworks was interactive, fully contained on a 144 k 5 1/4 inch floppy disk, and easy to understand.

Staff training was to sit a new employee down for 1.5 hours.

The relational database Access is complex, powerful, and impossible for me to learn. Much like Winston┬áChurchill’s dread of differential calculus, I am intimidated by Access.

Our billing and timekeeping are set up in an Access database. Lord help us if it acts up. Our Access guru Les has moved on.

I took three evening classes (10 weeks each) trying to learn access.

This template, shown on a tutorial video, gives me some hope that Access might be of some use to me some day.

Alas, too lake for me to learn access programming, but here is a interesting video showing the potential of Access:
