Scott B. Diamond has been an information technology geek for more than 20 years. He has spent much of that time designing databases on various platforms. He started using Microsoft Access with Office 97 and has mastered all the subsequent versions. Besides developing database applications for the company where he’s employed as an applications administrator, Scott also does freelance work, developing Access applications and consulting. He has always maintained that he’s lucky his vocation is also his avocation, so he spends some of his free time helping people on web-based Q&A boards such as utteraccess.com (the premier support site for Access). He recently received Microsoft’s MVP award for Access in acknowledgment of his contribution to the Access community. Scott, an avid bicyclist, lives on Long Island, New York, with his wife and daughter. You can reach Scott at AccessVBA@diamondassoc.com or visit his website, www.diamondassoc.com.
