Im planning to upgrade my Excel spreadsheet lottery tracking applications into a Access Based application like LotSoft. I have very little knowledge of Access, however, I can use LotSoft as a basics for my development. Is there anyone here that can provide me with insight, advice, references or assistance with the development of a Access lottery tracking database system
I would always recommend getting a good book before digging into a new technology.
I have no idea what your technical level is, so here are the two ends of the spectrum:
Access 2007 Bible - I have the version of that book for SQL Server 2005, and it's an excellent and thorough book covering all aspects of the technology.
Access 2007 For Dummies - The "For Dummies" books are always pretty good introductions for people just starting out. The limitations for these (and any beginners books) is that some of the techniques used are not necessarily the most efficient or complete, but that's OK for a beginners book.
These are both for Access 2007, but if you click the links you can certainly find books for the older versions of Access also. Access is an extremely powerful tool, and will be well-suited to almost any size application.
