Rob,

Keep your hopes on the back burner, and your workarounds handy -- I 
seriously doubt that FS will ever "catch up" with MS-Access or MS-Project, 
given the amount of work they spend on Word, Excel, and Outlook, just trying 
to get rid of the bugs that creep in to every revision -- and don't even ask 
me if I think they should spend even more time with the ResearchIt tool and 
iron out the variant problems with sports scores and broken web links.

Hi Shane,
Yes, Jaws does not work well with access. I think it's got worse instead of 
better.

Play with the tab & f6 keys to navigate around.

I've been doing queries, by coding the SQL in notepad, then in access, 
switch to the sql view, and paste the SQL from notepad into it. If there are 
no errors, it will save, and you can run it. If there are errors, you'll 
have to fix the query. It's not easy, or fun, but can be accomplished. My 
hopes are that Jaws will eventually catch up and work better with Access.
By the way, I use Vista Home, Office 2007, and Jaws Version 12.

Good luck.
Rod

Subject: Access 2007 queries

Hello all,

I am taking a course which requires the use of Access 2007
but am really confused about the JFW support here. I expect
this is a common enough application though so wondering
what others do.

My current issue is the design of queries. I have tried
using the query wizard and the query designer but Jaws
isn't reading when a table is selected and the resultant
fields, query types and values etc.

So just wondering how people are using access...

Best,
Shane
