What do you like about this subject?

This is an amazing tool for bringing and marrying different databases into one single pool. No Corporate firm will ever reveal the fact that they use MS-Access because of prestige, they might allways pick on the bigger giants. But the fact remains that all the middle work is done by MS-Access unknowingly.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Although I know so much about this subject, yet I feel I have to still explore & learn more. Nobody can say he knows complete MS-Access, this subject is so vast one will allways remain a student including myself.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

This can serve as a wonderfull front-end to the worlds best databases. People consider Access to be very small, but if used properly you will be surprised to see what it can do for you. (Believe me I run some of the Major Operations of a Multinational using PURE ACCESS on a Middle Tier).

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

People allways compare it with Oracle. I feel Oracle should be compared with SQL-Server, then we are talking Muscle Power here.
