Point A: You can't just go to row 57, a new blank database has no tables! (A database is NOT like a spreadsheet) At some point, you must create a table. How many fields should it have? What mode should I create it in (design view, datasheet view). If I create it in datasheet view, it does NOT start out with 57 rows (starts out with only ~15 on my machine). Should I enter in dummy data to get down 57 rows? (BTW, I know what I'm doing in Access, the above instructions are simply too imprecise to replicate) Point B: If you hold Ctrl Shft Alt, YOU CAN'T OPEN THE HELP MENU. Holding the ALT key allows you to dynamically drag components around the toolbars and menubars, and therefore you can't select anything. Are the instructions incorrect? Or does something magical happens once you have accomplished steps 1-6 that makes it work?? This sounds very cool, but more clarification is necessary.

For Point A here is how I got 57 rows (but I don't know if this method works because I didn't get the egg to work) 1. Create a new table in Datasheet view(you start out with just 22 rows) 2. Position your cursor on the first row, first column 3. Press the space bar, then down arrow key, keep going on to the end of the table 4. You will eventually get to row 23, keep on creating new rows this way until you get to 57 5. Go to field (column) 3 and type cars4me From there, I got lost... pressing Ctrl + Shift +Alt makes it impossible to open Help About... can someone post a solution to Point B?

The egg does not work. Holding alt automaticly makes it so you can drag stuff on the toolbar around so you cant open menus with it selected.

I think we're all missing something. The first time I tried this, right when I saved it as crazy cars 57 popups opened up automatically. I think that's what we're mising.

The idiot is probably talking about Excel. I could not test this since I have Office XP. Or it is fake. I have seen this crazy cars before, but I thought it was Word or Excel version 97 or 2000.
