Microsoft Access 2007

My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I use Office 2007.  I ask tons of questions in this EE forum and would like to download my question and also the replies to a database so that I could have them for easy access on my desktop.   Some Q have a file attached, or a code snippet, which I would like to save too.  Has anyone done something on this line in Access that could share the design?  Thank u.

Manually it is a snap, automating it might be a bit harder. This site does allow you to 'save' the question to your knowledge-base? Have you tried that?

Saving to knowledge base?  I think I did that always, but how do I see what is in there. thank u.
Also how does one do it manually.  Hope u can show me the steps by step process.  thank u.

My response, sorry about that.  I see the 'My Knowledge Base' selection.  But I would like to file it to my desktop, and then see which is easier to retrieve.  Thank u.

please note I am not a dba by any stretch of the imagination:

create your database
question table:
uniqueid, Question string
answered: boolean
attachments: boolean

answers: table
link to answers based on question id string
accepted solution boolean

attachments table
link to question id string

question one to many answers, attachments relation
answers: many to one question relation
attachments: many to one relation

Even better use the issues database template as supplied by Office.com

now its just a copy and paste

In response to ve3ofa, thank u.  But it is a bit too heavy for me.  Since my Access is 2007 I downloaded the Issues table, and probably have to modify the table to its bare min for a single user.
How can one extract the details from the Knowledge Base relating to myself.  Is there any feature here on EE that allows to download first and then import to a db.  Or would I be able to download my Knowledge Base, if Yes, what are the steps.  Thank u.

I have no idea.. I'm guessing probably not. perhaps there is some way of automating it via a web scraper but I leave vba to the vba guy's pretty much.

Here is what I do:

Create a folder on your desktop called "EEQuestions'

Then simply drag and drop the question address (via the "Icon" in your webbrowser's address bar) into this folder.

In other words you can't really "Download" the question/thread, but you can create an internet shortcut to it..
