Areas Of Expertise: 
  • Visual Studio 6.0/ Visual Basic 6.0/ Some C++
  • Access 97/Access 2000
  • VBA with Access, Excel and Word; also, a little with MS Project
  • HTML

I code in an understandable, easily readable, and well-documented fashion for all my projects.

My work comes with a satisfaction guarantee.


I have worked in the IT industry for over 18 years, working on IBM mainframe computers in Assembler, COBOL, DB2, and SQL. I have experience both programming and leading projects from start to finish.

For the last 3 years, I have been coding with VBA in MS Access, Excel and Word, and with the last 2 years in Visual Basic. I have coded in both regular and class modules. I am a conscientious coder, documenter and an excellent communicator.

I have used my skills to automate MS Office projects through VBA. I have modified Excel Workbooks, Word documents, and Access applications. I developed and am currently implementing a Project management system with a VB application frontend tied to an Access 2000 database, which interfaces with Word, Excel and Lotus Notes, over a network environment.

I enjoy programming in VB and VBA. With RentACoder, I hope to use my skills to earn a few extra dollars on the side from home.
