Projects/Work Time Log is designed for anyone who wants or needs to keep track of the time spent on various tasks and various projects (such as for hourly billing, or just to analyze how their work time is spent).

Projects/Work Time Log demonstrates a basic turnkey-style application in MS Access 2007 and higher – as well as clean and effective design for VBA code, data structures, and a customized user interface. Like most turnkey systems, Projects/Work Time Log's interface provides custom ribbon menus for the application's features, and hides MS Access features not relevant to the specific purpose of the database application.

The Projects/Work Time Log application is designed to be as self-explanatory as possible. The database is populated with a few sample records so that you may immediately begin evaluating its features. Refer to the Help Sheet in the application for information on how to use the application. The Help Sheet is part of the application, opened for you automatically the first time you run it.

  • Developed in MS Access VBA (Visual Basic for Applications)
  • For MS Access 2007 (Service Pack 3), MS Access 2010, and later
  • Modules, forms, and other database objects are unlocked and available for inspection and modification.
