A while back I was going to create a tutorial show how to use MS Access to clean and prune merchat datafeeds. Since my traffic is in the Sh__ter I am thinging about revisiting the idea. Would any one here find that sort of thing useful? If so does anyone mind if I post a link to it when it is done.
The tutorial would cover the process I use to import, clean and in some cases merge similar feeds using MS Access. The feed can then be exported to any delimited format for use with MySQL, Webmerge, or other application.
Let me know you thoughts.

ALthough many here use Excel (with it's limitations), so that may be a good thing to add to your list.

I'm also using Excel and Open Office's spreadsheet, and living with their limitations.
I've got Access but haven't had much luck getting up to speed on it.
A tutorial oriented to the type of work we do with feeds would be really super!

This does sound great.
I have been using Acces since my days in the military for medical records and inventory so I have a basic knowledge.
Time to head to Barnes & Noble and brush up.
