Total Access Analyzer
"The only way to
really know what's going on in your
database. I especially like its module
analysis and the way it catches unused
variables and procedures."
Access Developer Handbook
and many other books
Total Visual Agent
"I often use this
wonderful tool to schedule complex
management reports to run in the middle of
the night. Total Visual Agent runs the
reports when no one is in the system. This
means that processing involved in creating
the reports does not degrade the performance
of users trying to get their jobs done
during the day...the reports are ready
waiting for the users when they arrive at
the office in the morning."

Mastering Microsoft Access
