New to this group, let me introduce myself quickly. Im Jamie Brown and

I have developed a system, front end Access 2003, backend SQL 2000. I
currently distribute the front end (ade) to over 50 pcs, each one
currently has Access 2003 installed on it.
My question is, is there a way of compiling the front end so I dont
actually need Access installed on the 50 pcs? I have a license for
development on my PC but so I really require a further 50 licenses?
The bosses are keen to cut costs (arnt they all) and this is one area

There's always the end command but you might need to manage the consequences
if it is half way through something.

when I try to open a file that is not an .xls file I get prompted with the

file it is saved as an .xls file and when I open the file it does not prompt
me to do this. The problem I am having is that it fills rows and I need it
broken down to cells. Is there any thing that I can do? I have tried
renaming / changing the files extension to try to trick excel with no luck.
Figured it out - never mind. Used the Text to Columns feature.
