Books on developing access databases for fun & profit?

Hello all. Looking to pick up a few extra dollars with my hard-won
knowledge. Not looking to get rich, just have extra cash to buy more
software (thus feed my habit). Are there any books that would offer
advice on becoming an Access db developer for small businesses? Tips
like costing, deploying, tightly-worded, yet simple contracts?

A few years ago, I came across a lady's site (I think it was out of
North Carolina) which offered this advice for small website
developers. If anyone knows her site, I'd be much-obliged, because I'm
sure much of the info would translate. If this question is beyond the
charter of this newsgroup, apologies in advance.

Could anyone point me in the direction of a document that describes the difference between JET and Access? I can't seem to find anything. Another question i have is i have this application (.net) that writes to a databaase every 10 milliseconds(purely for testing). While it's writing i copy over the access file and it seems fine. Is this really safe? Is jet blocking until it can write? If does it queue up data. man it's hot in here...

Hi all As I'm sure is common knowledge the version of IIS included in XP Pro is limited in that you can only create 1 website in the IIS snap in.

Hi everybody, I'm a 22 yrs old girl. I've been developing a Database for 6 months no using Access. A week ago I had this feeling that I'm wasting my time in Access. I don't think it's wise to keep on working with Access. Instead I think I should consider learning and being a certified Oracle proffessional or something. What do you guys think? Thanks for your help. Miriam

Is there a way to find out where an application was created from? i.e. - work or home i.e. - if application sits on a (work) server/network, the IT people know the application is sitting there, but is there a way they can find out if that application was put there from a CD or email or created at work? Hint: It's not on a client/server database, just native jet database mdb created on Access 2003 (default 2000)...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
