My name is Mark Klein and I'm a software developer specializing in VBA
Programming and the development of relational database systems in Microsoft
Access. I've been programming computers since the early 80's and working with
Access since 1997, and I have years of experience in a small manufacturing
environment including millwork shops and cut and sew operations. In addition to
databases I do CNC programming and have written systems that parameterize CNC

Here are a few things I can offer your organization ...
- System Design I deliver three-tiered database systems, the tiers being
data (tables/queries), business logic (classes/programming), and presentation

- Rapid Results I have a huge library of objects and code that make a
system look clear, organized and consistent in a short period of time. Check out
some of these in the Tools section.
- Soft Skills & Communication. I listen to people. I understand that
changing how you do things at the office can generate anxiety. Your employees
may worry about job security or that they don't have the skills they'll need
going forward and I'm sensitive to these dynamics. I understand that for a
business owner or manager it's not just a matter of good data structures and
programming, it's about your employees buying into the plan.
- Partner in Your Goals and Objectives. I understand that software is a
tool, and only one aspect of the implementation of a business process. I can
deliver a better product if I understand more about your overall plan, and in
this respect I'm your partner. What I bring to the table is 'outside the box'
thinking--creativity and imagination--but at the end of the day the discipline
to formalize business processes and encapsulate them in an effective targeted
