Are you kidding me?  Access 2003 is sans ADP's!!!! :O.  Well I guess that's
all the more reason to convert my last project from an ADP to .Net2003 :(

were biting your tongue in the groups here because you were under an NDA.
The only thing I remember you saying was something about how disappointed
you were with Microsoft's direction with Access.

manipulation of SQL Server tables, right? Sorry if these are naive
questions; I've been wandering for a while.
