Access developers: Job Title question

P: n/a
I work for a company where I've built an Access database system that's
used for budget and forecast reporting. Now, this company is at the
point where they're ready (or getting ready) to go to a forecasting
tool, such as SBase, Hyperion, etc.

My question is this:
My title is "Database Analyst". I'm not an analyst...I'm a developer.
I've been doing this specifice Access work for about a year and in
general a total of about four years. I would be taking on this upgrade
project, and then being a major part of the end product. What would a
good job title be for this and, more importantly, looking ahead?

Database Manager, Project Manager, DBA...I wan't to keep building
applications using Access, Excel and MS SQL. Even though I'm in finance
doing IT functions, I'm definitely not a finance person---not why I was
hired.

I just don't have any good ideas for a title that would reflect my
wants to oversee the project and continue developing...and make money.
I currently make less than 50K, which is below the starting range for
my current position/title.

Thanks for any advice...

DBA sounds fitting. DBA's often have to code and so they develop. Of course
there are DBA's that don't code at all.

My favorite title is "Jack of all trades, master of none". ;-)

One interesting title I saw in in the credits of a movie was data wrangler.

I can re-count occasional instances where 'wrangler' could be replaced
with 'mangler'!!
