 Collecting data from 300 companies
Do I have a problem!

My boss wants me to collect data from more than 300 companies by using
Access or
anything compatible. It should be possible to send out 300 electronic
forms and then to put
them all together again in a database. (A form of decentralised
dataentry)

Does anyone have good ideas or does anyone have experience in doing
this?

Try using one of the survey packages. These programs allow you to send
our electronic surveys and have them sent back to you. See any of the PC
Magazine articles on survey software.

Geert: you are correct.. you could do that
with any database.. all you need is a "mailing
list" table that will feed the form letter,
and that table (or a linked table) to fill in
the results when the stuff comes back..
