    I am trying to create a way to keep and update yearly school-wide contact
    information that includes student and parent information along with email
    addresses. I would then like to use querries to extract certain email
    addresses to email an announcement to. The thing is that we don't use
    Outlook at our school. We use an SMTP mail server though. I looked at the
    different posts but couldn't find a way to do this that didn't mention
    Outlook. Should we use Access or is there another way? We would like to
    increase grade levels each year (+1 to existing) and add the new Kindergarten
    students and drop the leaving 5th grade students. In our email program, we
    would have to regroup every year.

    If your email program has an API you can use that
    Dundas used to have a freebie & there's bound to be a lot other free and/or
    cheap solutions available
    CDO is the standard windows API for dealing with mail - the only problem is
    that newer versions of it nag you wether you are really sending (or is it a
    virus/spam program impersonating you) & can be set up to use Outlook
    Express - search msdn for usage

    Sorry, need to read more carefully
    The way my teacher friend does it is using 'Class of' instead of Grade
    Then You can leave everything as is & calculate the 'Grade' based on the
    current year...
