Being a dick
I have a son with ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder) and whilst he is not a classic Kanner type - he is still not high-functioning.
Aspergers is high functioning ASD and there is a world of difference between that and where my son lies AND then another world between where my son is and where people with low-functioning ASD are.
It is sometimes disingenuous to label every part of the spectrum as "Autism," as the range is so vast.
It is a strange coincidence that he only gets diagnosed now. I suspect that it was a private diagnosis.
From personal experience a full NHS diagnosis takes up to a year and involves many people: Paediatrician, Speech and Language, Ocupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, teachers and psychologists.
I for one...

Re:File format *and* protection...
Excel is limited to something stupid like 65k rows (16 bit int size) so I doubt it was in Excel. That would mean approx 385 worksheets!
MDB - maybe - but PW protection is a pain in access and easily circumvented - what with MDA files and the like.
My money is on a huge csv (we regulary load in csvs up to 11 mill records so it is done) that was then zipped and spanned across disks; with the zip providing the much vaunted "password protection".
Facebook will steal your identity!!!
"MISSING DATA INCLUDES...
National insurance number
Name, address and birth date
Names, sex and age of children
Bank/savings account details"
BUT Thankfully this is not enough to steal money from us!!!

How come we here daily how Facebook will expose our personal info and we should avoid it at all costs. But releasing the above into the public domain is perfectly OK?
I think it is about time for a clear out - no Conservatives, Labour or Lib Dems - we need a new way of government. Old incompetent fools just doesn't cut it anymore.
Why why why?
Did they check with her husband to see if he was happy with this 6 months of "medical treatment?
