Question PM's - downloading and viewing

So I took the advice from the only two threads I could find on the topic and downloaded the vBulletin PM Reader from here: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Internet/Other-Internet-Related/vBulletin-PM-Reader.shtml

It works in that it saves all my PM's and I can read them (thank god because I'm near capacity), unfortunately the search doesn't seem to work. I type something in the subject field, click the search button, and I get no results. I try to fill in all the fields, which is stupid since I don't know exactly what I'm looking for, and still nothing. Maybe I'm just not using it right because I am far from a database guru. Give me a cisco router any day...

Any suggestions?

Oh and please don't PM me with the answer. :lol

As far as I can tell, you have to type in the exact title to have the search function find it. :wacko

actual title: "a request"

search for "request" no results

search for "a request" finds the pm

Sadly even that doesn't seem to work for me. I suppose the simple list of PMs in the database software is a lateral move from the current list of PM's in the bulletin board software.

Surely someone can whip up an Access template. :ninja
