Dave, what is the database built on? Access? Wonderfully automated? Just curious. I used to build databases and after retiring wanted to learn more about VB. I have tinkered with SQL, but VB seems to be the power tool. What a fun project you have.

Hi Mary,

ATP is programming in the PHP programming language and runs on a Linux system. The storage engine is MySQL.

I never messed around with Access or VB because I never really had much interest in proprietary systems like Microsoft. Big Grin

Smiling The rules here at ATP prevent me from repeating my husband's opinion of Microsoft. And I have been listening to it for decades. I suppose I would be classified as a dilettante with enough knowledge to get me in trouble. But I was able to build a tool that Providence Health System: Alaska Region still uses after 14 years to perform month end close (I was the accounting/payroll manager) and assure all accounts were reconciled to date. It was pretty cludgy which doesn't speak well for those who followed me if they are still using it. But it was fun to build. Thanks for the reply

I'm going to retire and live off of my savings. Not sure what I'll do that second week.

Me too I agree
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others. ~~ Sharon Brown
