Hitting for the Cycle with Outlook and Access

Mike Nindorf

This month’s presentation will demonstrate an application that uses Outlook, Access, Word and Adobe (writer) to create a Bankruptcy (PDF) Invoice. This process reads and modifies Outlook forms while storing the information in an Access database. The process will then pull correct bill information from an Oracle database, calculate the percentage used for the bankruptcy invoice, do the calculations and finally create the appropriate Word and PDF files. A form will then display for the Analyst to verify/change the results and give the option to send the required PDF file back to the requestor.
