Doug's Smart Access authors page is now pretty well complete with 25 Access articles setup at http://www.vb123.com/kb/Doug_Steele.htm. Topics include list and combo boxes, dsn's, message boxes, lots of date handling articles. Most important are the names that he choose for the articles like "These are a few of my favourite things", "Excelling automatically" and "I've Got Plenty of Nothing, and Did Someone Say Holiday"
