Just a quick note to offer a continuing thanks to all those out there who
offer quick, intelligent assistance. You are the ones who are keeping
Access the great product it is (thus assuring its continued survival), by
supporting it and its users in this way. Of course the thanks are all out
there, in little bits after each good deed, but it should be said out loud,
by itself, once in a while.

The level of expertise in this group constantly thrills me, but it also
often prevents me from posting my own answers and suggestions when I have
them, because I'm usually beaten by several replies from folks smarter than
me. So, I end up getting help far more often than giving it. This is
another reason for the separate kudos.

Before being cast adrift a few years ago, I had 13 years in with a Fortune
100 corporation, the last four in IT. I used Access heavily there, and am
now using it privately for anything I can force it into doing. Even just
for the VB interface to accomplish little one-off tasks. I'm using it as
mind exercise, to stay current in SOMETHING until the phone rings. I'm also
developing several business apps I hope to trade for actual money, to lots
of people, someday. Even with all this involvement, I still learn something
new here almost every visit.

In your debt,

Armando

I'd like to add my thanks too. I've only recently started trying
to learn VB-Access w/o any *access* from home and very little
time to spend w/ it in places that do have such *access*.

The help given here is very different from what I've seen in
other technical groups, where I have been able to get excellent
advice and explanation, but where it is unlikely to come without
insults, lectures about how answers to such trivial questions
could be found in the FAQS, complaints about the style of the
poster's request, experts ignoring the original question except
as a springboard for esoteric discussion of far advanced
technical points...

Now I have one of those trivial questions, but I will post it
under a more appropriate subject heading: I have been trained
by these other groups to inform the audience of the posting's
content in the subject line.

But be sure to repeat the problem definition *in* the message,
rather than relying on the subject line alone! There's a current
thread with a subject that if place in an 80-line message body would
be a 3-line paragraph, and many people's newsreaders make it
difficult to read such a subject.
