In other news, I'm trying to automate something that will save hours of terribly silly manual labor. I know, in pseudo-code, what the algorithm has to do, I just don't know how to turn that into either a macro or VBA or whatever. Basically, the idea is that we have this little Access database. It has information about stuff. There are, say, ten divisions, and they want to have an Excel spreadsheet for each division containing, say, 5 or so reports. So the obvious solution is to just have the 5 queries that take the division name as a parameter and have the thing go through the list of divisions, making a spreadsheet for each division containing the results of all 5 reports. The problem is I really don't know my way around these functions and I have Other Things To Do and this, while interesting, is possibly not really my responsibility. It's just something that's going to be helpful to other members of the team and reduce general workload - but not mine, directly. Still, I think it would get kudos from the boss, which is what really matters.
I have a cold. It's terribly annoying.
We need to find a way to move this couch. We need to find a guy with a few hours free, coordinate with the landlord of the place the couch is in, and rent a van. Perhaps a second woman would be sufficient, but having two people on one end is not very good on a stairway. However, the person on top does not bear much load, IIRC, so one woman in that instance might be sufficient... I'll have to draw some diagrams. I don't want to end up in a Dirk Gently situation.
