What's your response to someone who wants to use Approach over Access? I'm seriously looking for an answer here, not a bashing session of Lotus or Microsoft. Have you run into end users who bought into the blurb advertised by Lotus, something to the effect of having a database up and running minutes after opening the box Approach came in.
After using dBase, FoxPro, Paradox, Access, Alpha Four, and Approach - I find the fact that Approach is pretty much a front end to Paradox or dBase files interesting, while I find the performance and features of Approach disgusting.
I have found Access' built-in features can often be made to run circles around many of the other PC databases on the market. Most of the "experts" added to Paradox turned out to be clones of Access' control wizards.
