Approach to access migration

P: n/a
Hi,

We are actually migrating the whole application(data and the
forms,reports..everything) to access.
I think migrating the data (.dbf files) in to access will not be a
problem.
Wanted to know the challenges in migrating the application as a whole.
Please reply as soon as possible.
cheers,
nuti

You will have to be a bit more specific. What front-end are you
currently using to access the data? What exactly are you trying to
accomplish?

Hi,

We have got approach 97 applicatons and we are migrating to access
2003.

The approach applications have forms,reoprts and the forms have various
commad buttons which perform additons,deletions and calculations etc.

We assume that exporting .dbf files to access is not a problem.

We wanted to know the challenges(basically incompatibilities) when we
migrate the whole application to access including the forms,reports and
the functionalities.

Like you said, importing the data is very straightforward. Here is a
link from the Microsoft KB that explains the process:

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=302448

However, the front-end objects will be another matter. You won't be
able to import the forms & reports from Approach into an Access .mdb
file. This is not possible. Unfortunately, you will have to redesign
the front-end from scratch if you choose to convert your app to Access.

Thanks for the reply.

got one more query.

can we able to replicate all the features which are present in approach
application in to access?is there any siginificant feature which is not
present in access and is available in approach?

Sorry, but I am not familiar with Approach. If you could provide some
examples of what you are trying to accomplish, I could give provide a
more adequate answer to your question. I will say that you can
accomplish just about anything in Access from a functionality stand
point thru VBA coding.

What caused you to consider migrating to Access?
