You know there should be a smilie that has smoke coming out of its ears....really appropriate for how Im feeling right about now. I decided that instead of paying $300 for a software program to integrate customer information, preferences and diet, menu planning and orders. Id build my own database in MS Access. Everything was fine until I started designing the recipe costing part of it! Im starting to sound a lot like Fred Flintstone when he gets mad. ARRRRGHHH! This is the last part of the database! Why does it have to go into meltdown now. Ok I feel a little better. And embarrassed. Ill quit ranting now. Thanks for listening. :chef: Jodi Maybe Ill look back at today and have a good laugh.
