I also have had major problems just getting Contribute to connect to my webpublishers machines.  It will not connect no matter whether I send them the password or go and manually connect them.  I have tried all the suggestions that Macromedia sent me.  Making sure the Drive letter is the same on all machines, making sure the drive is mapped to the machine.  The user is also in the correct security Group.  They don't have access to the entire webserver, only the folders on webserver that are needed.   We are a Microsoft shop in that all the servers are windows. 
On my machine,  I have MX2004 Studio latest XP2 operating system and I also have Contribute 3 installed on my machine. I do not have any problems connecting to any drive. I have connected Dreamweaver with Contribute on my machine.  I am the Contribute Administrator, and I do have access to the entire web server, not just specific folders on the webserver
Since we are switching from Front Page to Dreamweaver/Contribute and I have restructured 90% of our webpages to be in line with Dreamweaver. In light of that, I am making 90% of the content changes on our website.

Are you sure that

is not set to=20

"Every visit to the page" ?

Going back to the original question... I think this may be a case where
may be asking a bit too much of the database. Have you looked at
where the result set contains a record for each row AND each column and
then doing the formatting (ie, reorganizing the data back into a grid)
the middle tier?

Example result set:

Month | Subject | Total
1 | Subject 1 | 100
1 | Subject 2 | 105
1 | Subject 3 | 110
1 | Subject 4 | 115
2 | Subject 1 | 89
2 | Subject 2 | 15
2 | Subject 3 | 92
2 | Subject 4 | 153
3 | Subject 1 | 59
3 | Subject 2 | 58

Good idea, Josh.

This was kinda the way I was originally going to tackle this problem,
and the SQL to get output like that is pretty straight forward, so I'm
leaning towards this approach and doing some server side scripting to
massage it into what I want, as graciously suggested by Matt Warden the
other day.=20

Another problem I ran into with this approach that isn't quite as easily
solved as the technical part, is the actual readability of a report that
would have potentially lots and lots of columns.=20

My whole goal of laying out the data in this way is to view all these
monthly totals together for easy comparison among them, but when you
start getting a horizontal spread greater than, say, 10 columns, your
eyes are starting to have to cover a lot of ground to see all you want
to see.

So, I guess, in the final analysis, I may need to shelve this problem
for now until I can find a solution that is technically elegant and
produce output that wouldn't make Ed Tufte want to beat me up.

Thanks for all your help guys.

I _do_ like... I open... I do not like... I want... I want...

Your entire paragraph has been en explanation of what you like, what you do 
not like , and what you want. You. Not "a representative sample of web users".

Not forcing a page to load into a popup window gives users the choice. 
Either to open them in the same window, or not open them. Using commonly 
available browser interface controls.

When you force the popup though, how would the user open the page in the 
same window, if that's what he liked or wanted?

Honestly I found your order form quite a nuisance. I'd never use it. But 
that's ok cause you've already explained to me that I shouldn't plan 
vacations in that part of the world because I'm not a week-long visitor.

Why was it a nuisance? Because to see an item I had to click to the various 
sections of your product offering, baby items, household items, etc, but 
when I went to order, I was still confronted with a huge order list that I 
*again* had to navigate to find the item I wanted. No intuition at all. Why 
not just present me the entire order form up front and save me the 
in-between crap. I could look at the order form and click each item to see 
the image of it if I wanted. But really, one bicycle looks pretty much like 
another and one beach umbrella gives shade just like any other.

Further, your assertion that "we (me and the client) like..." is 
meaningless. YOU (you and your client) will not be the users of the site. 
Unless your client is renting equipment from himself?

Exactly. Which is why you should allow for the option, and not force the 
pop-up on me. I'm quite aware of how to open my own additional windows. 
Since it's such a low-priority freebie why not just stick in a "Press the 
CTRL key while clicking the link to open it in a new window" notice.
