New Article: Working with Front and Back-Ends
By Bytes.com Member: twinnyfo

A long-understood, good practice for Database design is to “split” the database into a Front End (FE) and a Back End (BE). The FE contains all the Queries, Forms, Reports and Modules needed to make your Database work. The BE contains all the Tables that house the data for your Project. The FE is linked to the Tables in your BE, so that there appears to be a seamless integration between the two. The reasoning behind this (among other things) is that, most often, when an Access Database crashes, it is due to the Queries, Forms, Reports and Modules failing to function properly, which may cause the program to close unexpectedly or, more likely, hang endlessly and require the killing of the program through your Task Manager. If this happened with your BE, there are much higher chances that you would lose your data or even that your data tables would become corrupted, thus making your Database unusable.

New Article: Managing DSN-Less Connections

Until just recently, I would use system DSNs for all of my MS Access databases that connected to MS SQL Server backends. It is really easy to setup and didn't require all the code that I was seeing online for the DSN-Less connections. However, it is a pain to try to switch to a test server, make sure that you have the correct DSN setup on the client computer (changes depending on 32 or 64 bit client system), etc. So now I have made the switch to DSN-Less connections and decided to post how I did it (since I can't find everything that I need online).
