JM 2005-Dec-11 Form for Access Database.

Simple form for the sample database Northwind.mdb, which is included with the Microsoft Access Installation.

Enters new information in the "Employees" table.

Illustrates the use of a combo box loaded with information in table "Employees"

Just to play with dates, it inserts today's date as the hire date.

If a secured database is used, just enable the variables: mdw,user and password with the appropriate values, and use the database connect call that uses parameters: SystemDB,UID and PWD.
