  • Greystone
    Manufacturing Firm in Toano, Virginia.

    We built a Quality tracking database that imports 1000s text files output from manufacturing machinery.

    This microsoft access database reports defects during the manufacturing process for this automotive parts manufacturer

    From Greystone website: Greystone is a global leader in the production of high volume precision machined and plated components for the automotive, aerospace, defense and industrial markets. Specializing in safety critical machining, hard chrome plating, and anodizing, we take pride in developing innovative engineering solutions to difficult problems.
  • 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.
  • HORWITZ, RICHARDSON & BAKER, LLC
    Chicago Law Firm that used an Access database to manage their cases. We migrated their Access tables to MySQL tables in the cloud: Our Server.

Here are some clients we have helped in Richmond
