About the author: Andrew Couch, MVP, UK
As a founding member of UK Access User Group, I have worked as magazine editor, guest speaker, trainer and website manager for this group and also UK Office User Group.

I work with a number of partner organisations to undertake work within diverse industries from some of the world’s large financial institutions to manufacturing companies and start up businesses. As a developer my favourite back-end development tool is SQL Server, and favourite front-end tool is Access, however occasionally I find that .Net is a better solution for my clients.
