Biography - Tony Toews

Microsoft MVP LogoI'm the creator of the Auto FE Updater and many Access applications since Access 1.0.  After the local college gave a free two week course on programming to area  high school students I was hooked. I've been designing and creating business solutions since 1979.  I first worked with punched cards but fortunately missed the era of paper tape. Access 1.0 came out in 1992 and I’ve greatly enjoyed working in it ever since.

My major accomplishments are:
  - thirty+ years as a software developer
  - recognized by Microsoft as a Most Valuable Professional since 1999 in Microsoft Access, one of about 120 in the world.  My MVP profile.
  - over 39,000 postings in the Microsoft Access related newsgroups.  (Google occasionaly has troubles displaying newsgroup profiles.  As an alternative you can view my Google Group's profile in PDF format.)
  - My Stack Overflow profile
  - Tony's Main Microsoft Access is one of the top visited Access websites with over 150 sometimes long pages of technical content
  - Tony's Microsoft Access Blog is the most prolific Access related blog on the Internet next to the Microsoft Access product group blog.   To view all my blog entries referencing the Auto FE Updater click on this sentence.  
  - The relationships diagram of my largest Access system was printed on a 4' plotter and was hanging in the hallway of the Microsoft Access product group for a year.  .This system had 160 tables with 800K records in the largest table with 350 forms, 450 reports and 70K lines of code.
  - Uncle to three great nieces and nephews.
