CaTaLyST is someone who has come in to help KUB with site administration and development. You can forget about him for now.

A query is a way of getting data from a data source (Generally a table or another query). You can select table fields and also create extra field built upon existing ones. Other options restrict which records are processed; which are shown; various other options also exist.

Macros are shorthand terms for automating various tasks - a bit like a cut-down version of VBA. Not recommended for serious database work.
