    Dear Anonymous - I am experienced in VBA, and I'm here to say the error messages in Access are horrid, an attack on user productivity. I make a lot of my living in Access VBA and have come to hate much of it. I just got a "the expression on click you entered as the event property, etc" and there is NO help to it - no focus as to WHERE the error is happening. This is utterly typical for MS - there is no sense anyone in the firm cares an iota for my getting work done.

    The Ribbon is counterproductive. Another cosmetic assault on productivity, part of a decade long deep trend in MS that reached it’s climax in Win8.
    If MS cared about user efficiency they would have allowed us the choice; keep the text menus we all knew by heart, or toggle the Ribbon on.
    I and many others still prefer the text menus. The Ribbon helped drive me and many others from MS.
    I don’t know what drives MS here; hubris? Authoritarianism? The need to give new programmers something to do? Does MS think it’s fooling people with “NEW! IMPROVED!” ?
    This is part of what drove me as far away from MS as I could get; into PHP, Java, MYSQL.
    MS: I’d like to see you succeed. Make it better; give me a choice to dump the Ribbon. Bring back the 2003 version database window. Bring back pivot tables. Act like you care about us getting work done.
