Part of my new job has been to automate a few spreadsheets and joining data from separate systems. I'm much more comfortable working in ASP.NET, but I have a lot of background with MS Access so I don't mind at all. In fact its nice to "go back" a little and see how quickly you can do simple things in Access. You can set up tables, queries and forms in minutes. The built-in wizards make creating a basic form in a crunch very easy. The reporting component is extremely powerful. It has its limitations, of course, but with a little hacking you can get it to do that Gantt chart you needed or some crazy conditional formatting if you must. There haven't been many times where I"ve had to go outside of Access to build a report. Mostly roll-your-own type of things.
