GeneralThe Worst I've Ever Seen Pin

I'm working in a mixed-threat environment with little-to-no documentation (leaning heavily closer to "no" than "little") of Excel spreadhseet files, Access databases, something caled Vista FileMan, xmod files, DAT files created and FTP'd to special locations on the network from SQL Server jobs, and the SQL server databases all appear to be populated with user-created one-time-use tables.

It's a f*ckin' mess.

All of the stuff was apparently created by a non-DBA or non-programmer.

I'd like to repeat that there's little-no-documentation describing why something is done, the order in which it needs to be done, or where the f*cking resources are that were used to create what I am loathe to refer to as "data".
