MS Access is the program that re-aimed my career from Systems Engineer to Application Development 20 years ago.

Where I was at the time was a company that used Access (97) for a lot of the department tasks; and building off of these small apps taught me a lot of VBA. VBA led me to Classic ASP. Classic ASP led me to C#. And yes I migrated from Access to SQL.

Another side effect of using VBA within Access was that I became well versed in using ADO and Stored Procedures. I have very little use for Entity Framework because of it
