Microsoft Access

Contrary to popular belief and documentation, stored parameterized procedures can be done in Access! Here is an example,

PARAMETERS  [Title] varchar;
SELECT  from BOOKS where title like '[Title]*'

Using this method, performance is better then using a dynamic query in code. More imporantantly, queries can be easier to manage by a DBA when stored in the database, rather then being mixed into the application logic, no matter what Programming language is being used (C, Java, Perl, VB, etc).
