Is the grammar correct?
The computer has had a major impact on the way everyday tasks associated with design are accomplished.
Thank you all, it suddenly dawned on me why I was pusszled----I simply split 'tasks' and 'are accomplished' , actually they are closely related.
There are always good answers for stupid questions! :-))

Right--and you split the verb because you got wordy instead of using a simple adjective. Aren't tasks associated with designing "design tasks" also? So try
"The computer has had a major impact on how everyday design tasks are completed."
But why be passive?
"The computer has had a major impact on how we complete everyday design tasks."
Simple and direct is always best.Source(s): I have taught writing since 1969.

yeah but u could use a comma splice to make it flow more
everyday tasks, associated with design, are accomplished.

Yes, however "effect" might be preferable to "impact." No commas are necessary, and a comma splice, by the way, is an error that occurs when two independent clauses, sentences, have a comma between them.
