I have 10+ years of experience working with MS Excel and MS Access. I pride myself on my my analytical thinking and problem solving skills, along with my ability to automate or streamline processes through the use of formula-driven reports. I can take your idea and turn it into a reality. I have experience with writing complex formulas and macros in Excel, and writing complex queries and macros in Access. I also have a lot of experience with report writing in Salesforce.com and IBM Cognos.
I have been involved in procurement and sales in the manufacturing industry for roughly 10 years primarily in purchasing. I fell in love with VBA because of limitations of the tools provided at work. Quite often I find the tools provided are inefficient or not useful enough and I needed to find better, faster ways to get things done. Having a basic knowledge of VB I turned to VBA. In the last 6 years I have had a lot of experience writing code using VBA. I developed a little using VB.NET but for ease of distribution between coworkers, I soon converted those applications to VBA. I've written AS/400 automation tools, Excel tools such as a production planning/scheduling program with an Access backend, various automation tools with database backends and user forms for input that send emails with attachments or generate output files to be used for input to other systems. Many of the tools I've created in the office have become indispensable. Currently I'm in the early stages of developing a CRM/VRM system using VBA in Outlook that will either use an Access DB or if IT allows, an SQL server and also a multi user tool for tracking inbound overseas/rail shipments.
