Less is more (May 21, 2023)

After I have recently renewed the site technically and visually, it is now the turn of the content. On a few rainy, non-working days, I ran the database, browser, content blocker and virus scanner at full speed and checked all the links (at least roughly) by hand. In the process, I removed many pages that no longer exist (including some that I remember as really valuable), adjusted quite a few links and descriptions, and deleted or merged some categories.
Now the catalogue is only half the size, but twice as valuable again, because it only contains up-to-date links. But since this can change daily, I hope that you will continue to notify me of pages that have disappeared or changed.

Spring makes everything new (May 07, 2023)

Not only are the rumours about the demise of Access somewhat exaggerated, but the end of Yaccess and Yexcel is still far off. After 22 years, I have visually adapted the website to the current Office colours and brought it up to date with HTML and CSS technology.
And I took the opportunity to modernise and improve the Yaccess generator - the Access database I use to manage the content and generate the (static) web pages. Now Yaccess and Yexcel are generated in both languages from one code base, with uniform HTML and (except for the colours) identical CSS.
I hope you like the site as much as I do and help me with new links and your feedback to keep it up to date for another 22 years.

The future of Microsoft Access (March 19, 2023)

On the ACCESS FOREVER blog, Karl Donaubauer has once again summarised why the end of Microsoft Access is not as near as is often claimed:

New technology - old appearance (November 29, 2022)

After more than 20 years, a change of the technology behind the website was necessary. CGI and SSI are getting on in years and were switched off by my provider. So I made some webwork again and updated the technique to the current state.
And I have also cleaned up the content a bit. The next step will be to update the visuals, which will hopefully age as well as the current version.

Yexcel - The Excel Portal is being revised (November 11, 2022)

This website celebrated its 21st birthday this year and is (at least technically) getting on in years. Before it is shut down by my hoster, I am currently bringing the technical structure up to date. I apologise for any occasional glitches in the process. Just check back later.
