Introduction I am not an Access Guru and is not yet through learning MS-Access. We can learn lot more tricks from others if they care to share their knowledge too.

Developed more than 45 In-house Apps for Audit Dept. for faster execution of Pre- Audit functions: Yearly Budget allocations, P and L Analysis, Vehicle, Parts, Service Sales, Order Receiving, Payments, Credit Sales Monitoring, Credit Request Processing, Branch Visit Scheduling are some of them. I have Studied MS-DOS-based Apps dBase-IV, FoxBase, Foxpro, Lotus1-2-3, WordStar from 1991 to 1996. I have worked as a Section Supervisor, Computer Operator (NCR Century-101, VRX8555 Mainframe) from 1977 to 1990 with Y.B.A. Kanoo, Saudi Arabia.
