Heh. This is one of the many reasons that I avoid Microsoft products  
whenever possible. When I got my copy of Henry's database, I imported  
it into MAcintosh Filemaker Pro and had no trouble whatever with it.  
I customized a bunch of the fields and it served me well for years.

Writing is not necessarily something to be ashamed of, but do it in  
private and wash your hands afterwards.

I too hate Microsoft products though I use Windows (awful), but YES, I sell 
the database for $10.00 in *.dbf format (D-Base) or *.mdb (Access). I can email 
it to you with attachment. If you want illustrations I send the package (with 
illustrations) +  a diskette of the database in the format you want. $12.00 + 
$2.50 postage. Credit cards and Paypal accepted.  You get a quicker response 
if you email BooksetcSF at
