Automate and replace your Access databases
Did you know that you can use SolveXia to automate and replace your Microsoft Access databases?
- Access databases are often used to augment processes where data sets have become large (10k+ rows).

b) Filter data through queries.
c) Aggregate data.
Visual Basic is also sometimes used to orchestrate very complex Access databases. That is, the designer creates buttons and writes code to run queries in the database in a particular order.
