    VB vs. Access user interface


    What are the pros and cons of using VB 6.0 to create the user interface to
    an Access 2000 database versus using Access for both the interface and backend
    database?

    Re: VB vs. Access user interface


    Got a couple of days? Using Access to create a small, few-user application
    is fine. Lots of developers do it. However, scalability is an issue. Often
    the choice between Access and VB is one of skills--not in superior technology
    of one over the other. I've seen fine Access apps, but few that scale beyond
    about 25 users. In any case when developers want to port to VB they end up
    leaving years of development and skills behind to get to a VB or Web-based
    paradigm. Ask someone who has taken the upsizing trip...
