I'd replied privately to the original msg, but thought I'd comment on 
the follow up here. I've been using Micro Cookbook for Windows for a 
while. Initially I had problems also. Specifically, running After 
Dark and the Billminder option of Quicken will cause G.P Faults for 
Micro Cookbook V4.0C. However, I liked the program, and decided to do 
without those two features. I talked several times with Tech. Support 
at Pinpoint, and although they indicated they were trying to come up 
with a fix, I've never seen any code. 

Yesterday I received by snail mail, a flyer offering Micro Cookbook 
V5.0, with a 10,000 recipe CD-Rom version available, all for $19.95. 
It is being markedted by PC Zone, and has a bunch of new features, 
including import functions from other cookbook formats. Perhaps the 
best feature will be that it is MS Access based now, which may clean 
up some 'unique' database designs in the original product. I jumped 
on the Pinpoint BBS, but didn't find any product announcements. So, I 
left a couple of questions.

If anyone is interested, drop me a private note, and I'll reply when 
I have correct, current information. As far as I know, this will be 
the first cookbook package that can directly import from other 
formats. Might be enough to push Micro Cookbook over the rest.
