MICROSOFT ACCESS Easter Egg - C'mon, Join with Me

1) Launch Access 95, open Help

2) Choose the "Group Object" entry in the index

3) It will give you two choices, choose "Group object" (the first entry).

4) Choose the link at the top that says "Specifics"

5) Choose the "Group Object, Groups Collection (Microsoft Access)" entry

6) Click on the period at the end of "data access objects" in the first sentence. It is a link, which, of course periods usually never are.

Up will come a funny and pretty creative poem!

The poem was written by the incomparable Tamra Myers, a talented (if woefully underpublished) poet. You can find oblique confirmation of this in her author info for the book "OFFICE 2000 VISUAL BASIC PROGRAMMER'S GUIDE" Interestingly, that particular poetic easter egg made it into the final product via the tacit approval of David Risher, who was then one of the people in charge of Access at Microsoft and went on to be an executive at Amazon where he became the subject of an easter egg webpage (detailed elsewhere on eegs.com)
