Cheers Nicole, I know nothing of Vb so editing the code would be difficult. The problem with access is the forms would be difficult to modify for my needs and the finished product is rather ugly looking. I've been rather lazy this morning and posted straight to the forum with my query before doing a search. I believe I've now found what I was looking for and I'm about to install and have a look. If you or anyone else is interested - http://www.aadconsulting.cjb.net/addins.html thanks again, Darren ----- Original Message ----- From: "Nicole P" <nicole at parrot.ca> To: <thelist at lists.evolt.org> Sent: Saturday, May 11, 2002 12:58 PM Subject: Re: [thelist] access DB offline GUI > Any reason why the GUI that's inside Access is not good enough? > > You can create plenty of forms, and adapt them to all your needs.
