I have been told that I will be in charge of creating a database for the
documentation and product packaging groups in my company. Months ago I
wrote to several newsgroups and learned that such a task was best
performed by an Access developer. My supervisor doesn't think we can hire
someone. I know very little about Access, but I suppose I could get the
wizards to do most of the heavy lifting. However, even if I can cobble
together something, I know that I am not confident enough to stand behind
its long-term use and know what to tweak when things go awry.

How can I convince my supervisor that I cannot possibly develop the
database without devoting all my time to it?

Thanks for any and all comments, suggestions, or warnings.
