    Questions


    Hi Deborah,

    I cannot say enough about your book...it has provided great insight and has
    already answered many of my questions in the past. I have read both VB 5
    and VB 6 and look forward to VB 7.

    I have the following questions...

    1) Where do you see the future of XML? How does it compare to variant arrays
    and recordsets as a data transfer method?

    2) I understand that the new database engine for Access will the same as
    the database engine used by Microsoft SQL Server and replacing the Jet engine.
    I also have read about the scaled version of SQL Server for the desktop.
    Is there a move in the industry to focus on Microsoft SQL Server rather
    than Access?

    3) Are there any resources or case studies detailing how the various organizations
    that have implemented your GUIDS methodolgy in their development projects
    that I could read? Similar to whitepapers on the MSDN.

    Thanks Deborah...keep up the fantastic work.

    Re: Questions


    Hi Kevin -

    Thank you very much for the kind words about the book.

    We are now using XML as our primary mechanism for data transfer for all of
    our Web-based applications. We still use disconnected recordsets in many
    of our desktop based applications.

    Access was never meant to really be the database to support enterprise systems.
    It was originally only meant for single user or small work group applications.
    Microsoft is pushing to have people use the scaled down version of SQL Server
    to replace Access at this point as well.

    Regarding white papers, that is a really good idea. We should talk to some
    of these people to see if they would be interested in doing some.

    Thanks for your message -
