    Hi Douglas,
    I have looked into the VSTO, and the box reads "Visual Studio Tools for
    Office, Version 2003 is a suite of software tools that provides developers
    the tools and technologies they need to build the next generation of Word and
    Excel based solutions for the Microsoft Office System. " - will this still
    work for Access?!? It looks like it's only for Word and Excel...

    Don't know why the labelling is so poor.

    As I mentioned earlier, you need to make sure that you're getting the Access
    2003 Developer Extensions in whatever version of VSTO 2003 or VSTO 2005 you
    buy.
