Bank of Dave

<t>I think Millibands approach of "2 new high street banks will improve competition", is simplistic at best and foolish at worst.We need a variety of banking models, large PLC's, Building Societies, Co-Ops etc. Maybe follow the German model of local banks that build relationships with local industry...

programmatically use outlook

<t>My £0.02 worth.....Agree C# would be MUCH easier than C++, but why so quick to write-off VBA and just run it as a scheduled task?I understand VBA gets abused FAR more frequently than it gets underutilised, but that wouldn't be the case here. I do believe in "different horses for different courses...
