Real World Access (27)

One of a series of articles about where Microsoft Office Access applications have found a real-world niche.

 Thomas Möller's Mutual Funds

I have developed an application for a bank. With this application, commissions for mutual funds are accounted. The payments of the investment companies are verified and the payments are distributed to various clients.

From the beginning we have used Access as the front-end system. The data was stored in Access (JET) tables.

With time, the business grew. We accounted for more mutual funds and we increased the number of clients. In addition contracts with further societies were secured. These factors led the volume of data to grow fast. This was the reason to migrate the data tables to IBM DB/2. Microsoft Access is still in use as the front-end system.
