Worst thing is, I wouldn't be that surprised if it's been done somewhat similar, somewhere.

Funnily enough, I've got a project at work to turn some staffing spreadsheets into an Access database  :D

It's sort of nice to do it the other way around, but it's a bit of a leap for the users who keep asking questions like "why can't we just add a note to the report here...?"

I shudder at the unnatural abuse Excel is subjected to... I'm positive there are dark and evil forces behind this conspiracy.

At the moment I'm leaning towards Sun being behind it all. Y'know... Sun... Sun God... Virgin sacrifices... Y'never know!?!
