I'll have to look into access...I have used it before but don't know a whole lot about it.
Edit: No MS Access on my pcs...makes it somewhat of an issue...Neo, what would Access have allowed me to do? I can suggest it and probably have it installed if it will be worth it and I have a justifiable plan in place.

Access might not be the right solution either....all we know is what you have now is definitely *not* right. I don't know what kind of data you are trying to keep updated and what else is being done by those spreadsheets, but it sounds like your predecessor was wielding excel like a hammer and that data sure looked like a bunch of nails. Access might allow you to keep all of that stuff in one spot....so now you are just making sure that a single file has correctly updated 450 entries. Databases are good at solving problems like that.

Figure out a slick way to clean up and streamline the process and you'll look like a rock star.

...aaaaand this surprises you in what way?

Douglas, that's about the time I record a new voicemail greeting. The women in the office stop and listen when my voice deepens or gets raspy. One of them calls me Barry White. It's kind of nice, being sexually attractive for those few days a year.

Yeah but trust me, it gets boring being that way every day.

Well, cover those tits up and people might notice your purty eyes.

It seems my grandma is near the end. The final decline was surprising in its totality. Last Thursday night, she was talking, watching TV, fairly with-it. Within 12 hours she had entered a semi-comatic state and has been lingering ever since. We've been with her daily and I'm very grateful for the scant hours of lucidity she has given us. A lot of it has been babble that seems connected to her childhood ("Tell Mom I'm sorry, I didn't mean to make her angry!" and the like) but interspersed have been touching comments, always with a thin smile, like "Hi Michael, I love you."

This is the first time I've been around a dying relative. I just hope she passes on soon so that the ordeal is over, mostly for her sake but also for ours. It's beyond agonizing.

^ Holy shit, man. That's terrible. But it sounds like all parties involved are dealing with it in the best possible way. Which is small consolation, no doubt, but I suppose it's the best any of us can muster.

Best wishes to you and your family.

Genuinely sorry for what's going on, Mike. In a way, I think it's been hard for a lot of us here who've pretty much kept up with this on-going situation too (in this very thread). Stay strong and best wishes.

Mike, all the best to you and your family, particularly your grandmother.
post #34841 of 66604
My condolences, Mike. I hope you and your entire family can find peace.
post #34842 of 66604
My condolences mike

conne, that is a really difficult thing to see, but it is really great to see how much you put into being with her, and spending time with her. i am sure she appreciates it, and that is eases her pain to some level. best wishes to your entire family.

my grandmother passed away last year in l.a. she was in that same state, based on what my sister told me. you're so lucky to spend these last moments with her, mike. I hope she remains comfortable in her final days.
