Welcome to the Mitchell Data Base blog. On these pages, I hope to cover topics of interest to database consultants and users. The primary database platforms include: Microsoft Access and Microsoft SQL Server, but older platforms such as dBase may also be covered from time to time. Any and all comments are welcome. If you have sample files or other materials to contribute, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be contacted privately with posting information. Thank you for your interest.
