    Display info in windows (2k)

    I'm not sure if this falls into the windows remit.. but here's what i have...

    An Access application that displays a number., and some text. eg:

    happy birthday

    Is there a way, that i can run an application at pc startup time, that would display this number, and the text, in a small window

    Ideally, say put this number and text into the small window in the bottom right hand of the bottom toolbar in windows.

    That would require you to write an application in VB6, VB.Net, C++ or similar that reads the database, pops up a window and quits. If you place a shortcut to this application in the Startup folder (Cocuments and SettingsAll UsersStart MenuProgramsStartup or Cocuments and Settings<username>Start MenuProgramsStartup, depending on whether you want it for all users of the PC or for a specific user), it will start automatically.
