Dear dba-vb at databaseadvisors.com,

Isn’t access-d a great list? We’re the kind of community that actually
works—we get the technical help we need free, and without the ego trappings
that you’ll suffer from on other lists. I know that I find the list
invaluable, and there are several others—industry leaders—that agree with
me. Two of our members, Susan Harkins and Martin Reid, published a Jet SQL
book together in 2002, and this is what appears in the book’s
Acknowledgements section: “Thanks… to the AccessD folks for all their great
advice and help over the years. If someone on that list can’t solve your
problem, it can’t be solved.” And she’s right. That has been my experience
with the list for the last seven years.


The list isn’t a miracle of internet magic though. It costs money to run the
site and lists. So, I’ll be blunt, I’m asking for donations, both large and
small so we can keep this great resource going. (Membership isn’t tied to
donations. The AccessD community is free.)


It’s a small sacrifice considering what you get! Where else can you find
people, from all over the globe, prepared to help you solve your technical
problems? Have you ever had a thread save you time? If you’re like me, that
saves me money. And, just importantly, think of the times you’ve helped
someone else.
