Excellent! Thanks for the link, Martin.

Now if only there was a way to automagically convert the forms and reports... :-)

    Or a point and click tool to design web forms and reports. I've converted 15+ databases to a MySQL backend for speed (and other) reasons but leave MS ACcess as the front end. It tends to do that job well, although it is not very usefull if you need web access.

      Yeah, that's kind of what I was thinking. It has the added benefit that the user (there's only one) can just keep using the interface that she's comfortable with.

      This would buy me time to rewrite the GUI in Perl/Tk. Of course, any new feature requests would be developed for the new GUI, giving her an incentive to switch :-)

      I'm really intrigued by dwildesnl's thought on turning it into a web-based app, but I'm more comfortable in Perl/Tk - especially as I hope to have a quick turnaround time on this.

      Perhaps for some of the other apps... Time to do some research!
