Data Pig
A Datapig is any Data Analyst who makes a living managing databases, analyzing data trends, and developing reporting tools.
The tools of choice for most Data Analysts is without question Microsoft Access and Microsoft Excel. The Data Management and Rapid Application Development capabilities of Access and Excel allow Data Analysts to build flexible, low cost reporting tools and applications in short development cycles. Every now and then, we all have to turn to the internet to help us with that one bit of cod. Websites and books by developers like John Walkenbach and Allen Browne have saved me from being fired many many times. Like most Datapigs, I've found my bits of knowledge by riding the "GOOGLE" rollercoaster. Trial and error has led me to some very useful stuff.
So for my part, I have attempted to create a repository of my favorite places to get knowledge. I hope you can use this Website as a convenient help center for your problems of the day. And I hope this site helps you keep your job for at least another two weeks.
