I hope this is where I am supposed to introduce myself. If not, I hope someone moves this post.

I stumbled upon this forum by doing a Google search about an Access problem I am having. I am very old and have been retired since 2001. I started learning about Access and using Access when I had Office 95. I created databases then that I still use now. They went through all the conversions and are current with Microsoft 365 today, which is what I use. Back then I managed to create some very useful databases with the help of people I worked with who are much smarter than I. I used their programming knowledge to create VBA codes in my databases to do anything I wanted to do, that was way beyond my capabilities. My problem today is, I have forgotten most everything I learned over 25 years ago so when I have a problem I have to call on an old friend for help.

I do not have any hobbies to mention but my wife and I fill our days doing whatever we may like at the time. If we want to go out of state to visit family, we pack up and go. I am from the MID-WEST USA.

I do enjoy trying to keep up with the world of computers and have a home network of 6 computers. Often that keeps me very busy. Sometimes after I awake in the morning I can't believe it is time to go to bed already. OH, I guess I do have a hobby, I like to watch and often purchase movies on DVDs. This started back when movies could be rented on VHS tapes. Actually that is why I am her today. I am very disappointed that Netflix's DVD service is going out of business.

I am now going to try to find the correct place to post my question. I hope this serves as my introduction. Happy to be here and glad I found this forum.

Thank you for this reply. Please let me mention this. First I did read your link above, I read it before I made my first post but I do appreciate your suggestion. Only thing I would like to say is, I did not get an email notice of any post in whatever forum this is. That is why I am so late in replying. Also, I did get excellent help already here. I am so happy I found this forum.

Hello and welcome to the forum. I too have a collection of video discs, certainly over 250.

My collection is probably a bit more selective than some folks might have purchased. I focused on mostly science fiction including some collections of more than a few perfectly horrible B-films that even appeared in the Medved Brother's Golden Turkey Awards book. Movies SO bad that they are good in their own way. But I was not often drawn to romances, "classic" musicals, detective and detective noir, or "mellers." Action/adventure sometimes. Fantasy sometimes. And some comedies if I liked the actors.

But then, if you hang around here long enough you will find that my eclectic tastes sometimes spill over into my programming.

I was not selective at all. Oh maybe a little bit, I eventually eliminated horror films. Other than that, if they came out on the media at the time, I watched it. Glad the media became DVDs, they sure last longer than VHS tapes. I have close to 80 of them alone. I like comedy sitcoms but enjoy may others, as well. Yellowstone is GREAT. I absolutely love Beth. I also loved JR in the series Dallas. Devious characters but they made the shows interesting.
