I'd like to try this out.  Will it work under a user's "My Documents" hierarchy?  User documents
(including .xls, .mdb, .rtf, photos, movies, music, etc.) belong there, NEVER at the root level or
in any area that only an administrator can write to.
Unless this is a standalone program, it shouldn't even be in "Program Files" -- again, it takes
administrator privileges to put anything there.
Putting it under the "My Documents" hierarchy will make things MUCH easier when you decide to do
backups, and eventually when you upgrade your computer and transfer your files to it.

You also need Access 2000.  I do not yet know if it will un under Open Office, or how much wok is 
involved in making it do so.  Open office is open source and free, MS Access is not.

I've tried in Open Office, and it doesn't just work out of the box. I am
sure with a little time and effort it could be made to work though...Thus
far, I have not had the time though.
DJ, is there any chance of a port for Open Office? I am sure this is not the
first time you have heard that question...maybe you are already working on

Hello.  Who put together the features of this list?  Is there a URL 
available that summarizes the functions/applications/usage of this database?
Thanks in advance.
