1992 – Access 1.0 table designer and referential integrity, powerful queries, flexible form designer, and report generator

Recollections of Luke Chung, President of FMS, at the launch of Microsoft Access at COMDEX November 1992. What the desktop database market was like at that time and how Access took it over by storm. Also discusses missteps by Borland (controlled 85% of the desktop database market) and how FMS become the world's leading 3rd party vendor for Access. Part of the Microsoft Access 10th Anniversary celebration in 2002. http://www.fmsinc.com/MicrosoftAccess/history
