    I am so tired of Access 2003 crashing due to a problem reputedly fixed by the
    Access 2003 post-Service Pack 2 hotfix (my issue is the last one bulleted in
    article 902445).

    Yet the contact support page says it'll cost me $35 to request the fix!

    Is there any way to get the Access 2003 post-Service Pack 2 hotfix without
    incurring a fee?????

    Did you see the entry in the KB article saying

    Note In special cases, charges that are ordinarily incurred for support
    calls may be canceled if a Microsoft Support Professional determines that a
    specific update will resolve your problem. The usual support costs will
    apply to additional support questions and issues that do not qualify for the
    specific update in question.

    If it sounds as though you qualify for the hotfix, you shouldn't have to
    pay. You will still be asked for a credit card number when you phone, but no
    charge should be made.

    Hi Doug

    Thanks for your speedy response. A fix as broadly applicable as this one is
    should be available as a download or SP or something. It's been several
    months since the issues it addresses came to light.

    Guess I'll have to call.

    Thanks again.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
