Run tests through access?

    I am currenlty employed as a junior business analyst and I have been using
    MS Access for s ome time as a store for our analysis. What this analysis
    consists of is looking at individual data elements and building data
    transmissions containing these data elements. These transmissions must coform
    to the specs we receive from our clients. Access has been great in our
    analysis phase so I would like to explore the possibilities for Access to
    support our testing pahse. Ideally I would like to incorporate it into my
    existing Access application.
    We send our analysis to the developers the data transmissions and then they
    begin to send us the completed transmissions back in CSV format. I played
    around with building tables that conform to tour specs and importing the CSV
    files to it and checked for errors. This worked well but was very labour
    intensive and I had difficulty seperating the header and trailer records from
    the message batch.
    Does anyone have any ideas on how this could be provided for in Access?
    Would it be easier upgrading to SQL for the DTS? Any ideas you have would be
    fantastic for me!! Many thanks -Ben

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
