I assume this is directed at me; apologise if I'm being oversensitive.
It's not a question of whether one is pro- or anti-microsoft; it's
that your questions are basically using the group as a "geek pool" for
answering *any* vaguely technical questions. This is not the purpose
of the ILUG; it is a *Linux* *Users* *Group*. If you have Linux
questions, there are many people here who will put a considerable
amount of effort into answering them. But asking questions about
Microsoft Access (of all things) just isn't fair; even if there's
someone here willing to help, it's an abuse of the list.
There are *plenty* of Access and Microsoft help sites and forums
around the Net, but this isn't one of them. Use Google, and a bit of
smart, and you'll find what you're looking for *without* having to
presume on the goodwill of the Linux community.

Can you get arrested for shouting "Movie!" in a crowded firehouse?
