I just signed up for comcast, but one downside is their support costs money.  I just want to make a db in Access of the channels and which station they are, preferably with a graphics of the channel logo.  I am sure either this may be out there in some form or other, or someone else would have done so, thus I do not want to reinvent the wheel.  is this available either in a Access db format or in a format where I can import into Access.  
Thank u for your response.

I'm not sure you need a database for that. Aren't you just talking about having a list of channels? If so, then just use Word or Excel.

Just click on TV listings on the Comcast.net home page.  http://xfinity.comcast.net/  It's free and it will list the channels in your area, just put in your zip code.  No, they are not all the same in all locations.
