Robert Smith has been developing solutions with Access for over 10 years, in fact, ever since its original launch in November 1992. He currently works for EH3 Consulting, a software consultancy with offices in Edinburgh and Bath, where most of his time is spent designing Access or SQL Server - based solutions for a variety of companies throughout the UK and Europe. When not working, Rob takes a keen interest in the progress (or otherwise) of Crystal Palace Football Club, as well as indulging his other passion for collecting (and occasionally sampling) fine wines. In practice, the varying fortunes of the former normally mean that he spends a lot more time sampling than collecting.

After writing his first two books while in full time employment, he realized that being an author sounded more glamorous than being a programmer. The reality is somewhat different. He now spends most of his time writing books for Wrox Press, speaking at conferences, and playing with most be ta products that Microsoft ships.
