Open .cty with Access
I am so tempted to add about 200 articles to .cty in Access. Doing it manually is just too tedious and error proning.
Have you looked at CopyBoy? Sorry, I don't have a link for it, but search for it here, you'll find it.

There's no public spec, but it's not that hard to figure out. You can add stuff to the .cty directly, and if you get everything right it won't break CityDesk. You'll need to refresh in CityDesk to see the new content.
One big caveat I forgot to mention, though: while this approach will work for things like dates and headlines and teasers, it won't work for the article body, which is stored wrapped up in an OLE Object field. If you want to edit that, you'll need to write code instead of using the Access user interface.
