The Red Cross, and your portable applications.

Currently almost all of the data (primarily volunteer lists) are in the form of databases in MS access. I know you have open office in a portable format, however I do not know open office. I would like to learn, however as of yet, I have not been able to find a way to easily transfer all of my current data and work (specifically the forms I've built) to open office.
So, in the event that the available computer does NOT have MS access, I have found a way to output the data in PDF format. Which is where your SumatraPDF viewer really shines. Not many people know this, but you can drag and drop a PDF file into a shortcut file that points to the .exe of the viewer, and the viewer will open the PDF file. This makes it very handy and simple. I just keep all my PDF files in the same folder with a shortcut that points to the .exe of the viewer.
So, my thanks from Red Cross goes out to all of you that made this come to be. It makes life easier, and with the way our economy is going right now, life easier is always better.

P.S. It would be nice to have the "E-Mail this PDF" command in Sumatra. But hey, it works, and I'm happy.
