    C# vs MSAccess in development time

    Which is the faster to develop in?
    Is all the automation available in C#?

    VBA is much faster than working in C# in my view. There are support tools in Visual Studio that will let you work with Word and Excel, but you have to do much of the lower level stuff that you do with functions yourself. And the query engine will only work with the VBA functions. I don't know of anyone who uses C# with application level development - of course the Access development team does their stuff in a more powerful language.

    Interesting stuff Wendell.
    It's amazing how much feeling there is against MS Access, hence the question.
