Seven years ago, my student and I at Penn State built a bot to write a Wikipedia article on Bengali Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore’s play “Chitra.” First it culled information about “Chitra” from the internet. Then it looked at existing Wikipedia entries to learn the structure for a standard Wikipedia article. Finally, it summarized the information it had retrieved from the internet to write and publish the first version of the entry.

I have reviewed tens of thousands of lines of programmers’ code, not just in Access 2007, and have found that many lines of code are being written in areas where much less code was needed to do the same job. Here’s the technique that will save much time.
