EE is one of the best places for Access information. But it lacks well written articles on Access concepts. Consider the question that comes up frequently about records getting saved accidentally with bad or missing data. This type of FAQ could answered in two articles, one about the way Access commits records and another about good form validation techniques.

I've thought for a while already that it would be a good idea to start an Access Wiki. But I'd love to hear some more thoughts and opinions. Would we be duplicating information that is available at sites like mvps / Access Web? I find that site to be helpful but frequently inadequate. I think the Wiki could link to other sites rather than rewriting the same information (or copying it). I think the Wiki would really need to become large and authoritative, with good searching and indexing so that relevant topics can be found quickly. A page full of sample databases available for download would also be nice.

Is there anyone here willing to help by doing some web programming? Anyone want to help put together articles? Submit sample databases?
