Why use Microsoft Access

Came across a good balanced article on the benefits of using Microsoft Access.  If you are considering Access you should read this article.  Click Here.  The key message is that 95% of Access programs never develop any further.  Just like spreadsheets they either address a short term need (maybe a few years), automate a niche function, or address a problem that does not require a fully blown IT development project.

One quote I liked was “Empowerment: Ability to create what you really want without going through someone else (people don’t use other people to write documents or create spreadsheets any more)”
