My name is Patrick Wood, but you can just call me Pat. I decided to make a simple Access Database one day and I had no idea what I was getting into. I learned database development, Access SQL, and VBA. I fell in love with programming and software development. That application today has over 30,000 lines of code.
I began to work with other Microsoft Office programs. I learned to develop Microsoft Office Applications so different Office Programs would work together to make using Office easier and more productive. I also decided to develop my own website, Gaining Access, that would enable others gain access (pun intended) to applications I developed. So I learned website development using ASP.Net and Visual Basic, CSS, etc,.
I am presently writing a series of articles about how to use the power of WMI with Access VBA.
I also do custom Access and Office application development work for clients overseas and here in the USA. Helping people by developing software solutions that make things easier brings me great satisfaction.
I love nature and the outdoors, history, and trying to play the guitar.
You can contact me at my Contact page.
I am very honored to recieve the Microsoft Access MVP award!
