Now little crafters, are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin.  Building an access database needn't be so hard , once I've giving you your instruction it will as easy as laying an egg.

Self employed sole workers. Do you ever find yourself wishing, WISHING above all else that a computer savvy genie resided in one of your button jars only to emerge in a puff  when the lid comes off. Or that one of your creations might somehow come to life and tell you everything you need to know about running a business. I do…oh boy I do!

I have spent most of the last five evenings trying to figure out how to create a drop down list in an access database. I really thought I had a pretty good head for most software principles but database programming… I just can’t get my head round it. I feel as though my brain cells are turning from white to grey to purple with the sheer exertion. I feel like someone with Bell’s Palsy trying to smile.

By the way…the Lavinias (hens) above were positioned by Tina during an inspired moment in the studio. I’m glad she has an equally infantile sense of humour otherwise work wouldn’t be half as fun.

  1. Access database! Oh dear…I spent two full days a long time ago learning how to do Access but I have forgotten it all. Have you looked on YouTube? You never know maybe someone has posted a video on how to do the drop down menu. Good luck L x

  2. Sarah Sarah Sarah, when will you realise that you need to stick with what you’re good at and badger somone else into helping you in doing the database. Love the hens, very different and very cheeky. I hope this mail finds you well. I will be seeing you soon PROMISE.
