We currently use MS Access as a front end to Oracle and are thinking on moving on to .Net as a way of creating either a web-based or desktop application. Right now it's pretty easy to view our tables as well as queries in Access whenever we are troubleshooting a problem. How would someone using Visual Studio accomplish the same thing? Would you still keep using Access so that you can easily do so? In addition, how would you go about reusing queries if not using Access. Everything I've seen so far has to do with using SQL strings in the code for queries; so is there no simple way to save a query and reuse it in code by referring to its name?
