    Google Sheets or Google Forms might be a better start point.

    Acorn... it just is, what it is... and serves its simple, desired purpose.

    • A free MS account (just like Google) gets one the online Excel "licensed copy" which can generate embed codes.
    • Don't care much about, nor think about "The Excel code" LOL.... All parties like it... so, success! (I've been told, more than once by coders the Xara's code is horrendous) And I just laugh.
    • and wouldn't I need to keep the Google Sheets or Forms available also for changes?


    Like I said... it's just a simple thing that serves the purposeŚwithout getting to deep into thought... and tearing it up for faults... (even if true) Gets the job done... (gets me paid)

    Thanks!

    Cliff, I appreciate the rebuttal. I didn't know about the free on-line Excel. If it is on-line then you have a master copy as in Google Forms for editing/updating.
    I have developed professionally with Excel and I would not use such a powerful tool in the wrong place; it is all down to a definition of "simple" - design/develop/explain/support/use/present.

    As you say, in the end, it's if it is liked (and the money).

    Hi Acorn... for me it is all down to a definition of "simple"... because "simple" is all I could do... LOL
    Sometimes it's frustrating not being a tech person because we really don't know the most efficient/better way to do something.
    So we... I... live a computer life of 'work-arounds', 'shortcuts', etc.

    And yes, it has it major limitations in that we... I... have a ceiling on what we can do. But at my age... I'm stuck with it...

    And BTW, you...(and some of the other veterans) have been over a long period of time been SUCH A MAJOR help to me... I've been trolling your posts for a long time... LOL

    Thanks Acorn!
