Discography Front End

Postby kirkm » Mon Sep 27, 2010 2:59 am

Hi folks,

I had an enquiry about the UK and US discographies now on the File Server. The problem was they weren't conversant with MS Access and asked if there was an Excel version.

Excel will only display 65000-ish rows per sheet, so the full discographies won't fit. A better solution is an Excel font end which uses the Access files, and displays (in Excel) your search results. Still limited to 65000 rows, but most searches won't get that many results. It also combines both tables and you select the wanted database by which flag you click.

I'm undecided if there's enough interest to put it on the File Server or not? But if anyone would like it just sing out.

Cheers - Kirk

Had to temporarily take the website down today to reinstall a new server upgrade that took a whole lot longer than expected. All back up now, except the labels, which I'll set to start when I hit the sack and should be back available by the morning.
