I have now a python module that can access MS Access (haven't used it yet, you 
can have a first go if you wish).

It will be easy writing a few lines of code implementing a "xcIdentityServer" 
who actually uses the Pracsoft Access database as backend. Even easier when 
they use MS SQL.

That way, I can use my gnumed recall system, sharing address information with 

As gnumed modules start becoming functional, they will gradually replace 
Pracsoft until all Pracsoft functionality is finally completely replaced.

As soon as MDW is available in the MS SQL server version, same will happen 
with MDW.

These "data leeches" will allow a smooth gradual transition from one system to 
the next without having to re-enter data.

Extra benefit: by implementing an XML-RPC data leech for these proprietary 
platforms you have already solved all import/export problems. As soon as you 
have one functionality replaced, you use the corresponding get/set functions 
to transfer the data.

So easy ... if I would just have a tad more time. Cross fingers, I am just 
about to employ another doctor - if she bites the bait, I will stop working 
full time as a doctor (3 days a week will do nicely) and have more time for 
family and programming without any major financial drawbacks.
