Does anyone have a copy of Virginia Andersen's "The Complete Reference: Access 2000" that they'd be keen to get rid of in exchange for some dosh? I'm needing a copy before next week, and none of the NZ shops I've tried have it in stock...

Cheers, S

Have you tried a library? Christchurch has a few copies of her "Troubleshooting Microsoft Access databases covering access97 and access 2000", which would be available by Interloan.

You can access the catalogues of most public libraries through the Internet.

Try ringing McGraw Hill NZ, as they are the supplier of the book 09 262 2537. They may sell you one directly, you never know.

Thanks for the feedback - Graham, I'd prefer to buy as am looking at having it long-term, but will try the library as a last resort.

Obelix, I hadn't thought of trying McGraw directly, but having done so I'm told they will do cash sales - unfortunately the title in question isn't in stock :(

Will try some more stores further afield...

So Auckland is actually good for something, after all...
