One less reason to open Microsoft Access... My reading log is now in Notes.
About the only reason I use Microsoft Access any more is to keep my reading log updated. That's the database I've had for over nine years that lists the books I've read. I originally built it back in 1996 as a training exercise to help me learn PC software (I was just coming out of the mainframe world), and it's pretty much just moved from Access version to Access version each time I upgraded.
I figured it was about time to convert the database over to a tool that's much easier for me to modify and tweak... Notes! :-) A quick LotusScript agent allowed me to move over all the data using ODBC. I added some views to give me the type of reporting I wanted, and I was good to go. It also gave me an opportunity to fix a data design problem I made on the original database. My Author field was a single value, which really messed things up when there were multiple authors for a book. In Notes, I just made it a multi-value field, updated the records affected, and now I have the design I need for proper lists by author.
Notes is such a great tool to work with. :-)
