Access front end to Fobgubz

OK first of all, am I the only one who can't seem to type Fobg... See, did it again.

I'm using Access as the data store. Has anybody knocked up a front end to Fogbugz using Access? I mainly want to be able to get printed reports to the client, as in, 'here are the ones I fixed for free, here are the feature requests I'll implement for nothing, here are the ones that'll cost you money.'

It's probably not a massive job, but if somebody's already done it, me not wanting to reinvent the wheel and such.

* Run Access
* Create a new blank database
* File | Get External Data | Link Tables
* Point to FogBUGZ
* Link to all the tables

all done.

Thanks Joel. I know how to do that. I was being very lazy I know, but was wondering if anybody had knocked up a quick and dirty set of forms and reports. Looks like I'll have to do it myself if I want it.

TTFN, Mike
