Hi Stewart,

You will need to convert it to Access 97 as follows:

- Select the menu option Tools > Database Utilities > Convert Database > To 
Access 97 file format

I hope this helps!  If you have additional questions on this topic, please 
respond back to this posting.

You could try converting your Access 2000 file 
via "Convert to a prior version" under the TOOLS > 
DATABASE pull down menu.

C++ Asignment, submiting files
Hi, I have an assignment to submit and right at the end the instructions are: 1) Source code (must compile cleanly in Visual C++ 6 or 7). I have warning set to 3, the code compiles with no warnings and of course no errors. 2) Compiled Win32 binaries. Include any 3rd party DLLs needed to run the application. How can I find out, for certain, what DLLs are needed? My app does not use any third party DLL, (none that I know). Must I submit the windows stuff as well, I will build statically so there is no need for any Dll as far as I know. But how can I really tell? Thanks Simon "S...

Stopping avi, jpeg, bmp and mpeg files...
Hi Team, What are you using to block avi, jpeg, bmp and mpeg files? Is there a way natively that Exchange can do this? Not natively.

Check your AV Scanner for Exchange, it should have this capability. -- John Oliver, Jr MCSE, MCT, CCNA Exchange MVP 2006 Microsoft Certified Partner "Smohrman" <> wrote in message > ...

Hi, I have a workbook that contains two charts. There is no protection on the workbook or the sheet that contains the charts. The workbook is shared to permit people to update it simultaneously. People need to put these charts in other documents and the ususal method for this is to select them both by holding down shift and clicking each one, and then copying and pasting. However, the problem is that when the workbook is shared the charts cannot be selected. Is there anyway of sharing the workbook and allowing people to edit/select the charts? Many thanks in advance.
