User's Ship Iceberg Collision Database Manual_LM-2004-33 in PDF format describes the database and helps the user in performing searches.

For users who have Microsoft Access version 2000 or better already installed on your PC.

This database was compiled by Brian Hill of the National Research Council's Institute for Ocean Technology in St. John's, Newfoundland. While care has been taken to ensure the data therein are as accurate as possible, much have been taken from a variety of secondary sources which are unverified. The user is cautioned to use the database with discretion and neither the author nor NRC make any warranty, express or implied, or assume any legal responsibility for the accuracy of this database or accept any liability for the use, or damages resulting from the use thereof.

For users who do NOT already have Microsoft Access installed on their PC and who wish to download the MSI file.

Note that this option installs the Ship Iceberg Collision Database and the Microsoft Access 2003 runtime on the client computer. The Microsoft Access 2003 runtime installation is independent of and coexists with Access 2.0, 95, 97, 2000, 2002 and 2003.

Note that if the client machine DOES have a version of Access prior to Microsoft Access 2003, an issue can arise after the installation of the Ship Iceberg Collision Database and the Microsoft Access 2003 runtime. If the user navigates to a directory on their computer and double clicks a preexisting MDB file then the file is opened using the Access 2003 runtime, rather than the client-installed version of Access. Starting the client-installed version of Access manually, i.e. by navigating through the Start Menu and invoking it, and then closing it, resolves this issue. Subsequent double clicks on MDB files result in their being opened by the client-installed version of Access, as expected.
