  • Routt County Alcohol Council
    The Council contacted us to upgrade their Access 97 database to the current version of Access. We have to first move the database into Access 2003, and then into Access 2019 (365). The was further complicated due to a workgroup information file protecting the Access 97 database and then advanced vba code that needed modification.

    We are frustrated that Microsoft does not provide a transparent upgrade path from Access 97 directly to Access 365 (or whatever current version of Access is out today). We are further frustrated that Access discontinues support of features such as workgroup information files, pivot tables/report, Access Data Projects. So clients are forced to contact consultants like Data Control. We realize the importance of your database and the dilemma you are in. So we try to fairly price the upgrade to the new version of Access hoping that we can get future development work from you.

    To get around the Workgroup Information File issue (the client had no documentation of this which is understandable considering the database is 20 years old and the original developer long gone), we opened a new Access 2003 database and imported all of the objects. This then allowed us to open the Access 2003 database in Access 2007 and perform the final upgrade steps.

    This particular database uses advanced VBA code and expected the data file to be in a particular position on the server. If the data file wasn't there, the reports didn't work. So we searched through the code removing this requirement. We also had to modify a few of the libraries

    Routt County Alcohol Board is a non-profit serving the city of Steam Boat in Colorado. Their database is a case management and reporting vehicle for their operations.

Project Description

Bravo Wine Imports

Bravo Wines is an importer from Harrisonburg, Virginia. They asked us to modify their Access database which integrates with Quickbooks

Bravo Imports Wine mostly from Italy and sells, through agents, to restaurants and markets including Kroger. This database application provides both a web page for entering orders as well as Quickbooks integration for creating invoices from those orders and updating current inventory and product lists. This is accomplished through an ODBC connection directly to Quickbooks.

Agents and Items are managed through the Access database which communicates with the Website via MySQL connection (attached tables in the Access database). When Agents place orders, those order are viewed in the Access database, massaged and approved. Again through the use of attached MySQL tables.

We provided the Microsoft Access help for this project

From their website: "Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing." Ernest Hemingway

Blue Ridge Operations

Blue Ridge Products, an internet storeplace to purchase products, hired us to perform FTP integration with Access 2013. Blue Ridge creates orders and FTPs those orders to various warehouses including Amazon's warehouses to further process those orders.

Blue Ridge is an import company in Richmond, Virginia that creates their own products, has them produced in China, imports those products to the United States and sells (mostly) through Amazon.

This Access database is the central backbone for the company. It details all of the products, sales of those products, forecasts of the product sales, tracks current inventor levels etc.

In addition to integrating with FTP software, this database has complex integration with Excel, both importing/massaging excel files as well as producing Excel files for both the company's internal personnel as well as the various warehouses used by the company.

We provided the Microsoft Access training and documentation
