Powerful for a desktop database, Full VBA support
Too powerful for its own good, no stored procs, limited join support
I use Access a lot. I have used it to drive a ton of web sites I’ve developed. It is quite powerful for a desktop database. It plays nicely with all the other Office applications. The downsides from the database side are: Access doesn’t support stored procs and certain types of joins. Also, because of Access’s power, it is often implemented places where it shouldn’t be. When an application grows a lot, it can outgrow access and cause problems (Advantage Software Company’s AdAssist is a prime example).
