I did get your point about "use Access if you have it already". My point was just that unfortunatly we can't rely on our budget users allready having access.
I also totally agree with you about access being a very good choice for inexperienced users. However, being tied into a gui can be quite anoying at times.. just like a unix prompt is so much more powerfull than the windows explorer... if you know what you are doing that is =)
there was discussion about porting Perl to Palm PDA- can you believe that?
Yeps... I'm actually running Perl on my Psion 5mx... works very smoothly! =)
