You posed your question in a newsgroup dedicated to Access forms.  I'll 
assume you want not to see those fields in your form, rather than "hiding" 
them in the underlying table.  After all, you don't want your users mucking 
about in the tables directly...

If you need/want the fields attached to the form, but not visible, you can 
set the control's .Visible property to False.

In a Table? AFAIK you can't. But then users should never see table datasheets
in a production database anyway; they should see only Forms, and on a form you
can just not display these fields.

File List Folder Outlook 2003
Hi, I found an article which describes how to setup a folder to view any file system folder in Outlook 2002. I can't find any equivalent in Outlook 2003. Basically I just want to have an Outlook 2003 folder named something like "my files" and have its address pointing to a mapped drive. I have tried setting up a "home page" location on a folder, but it only works for web addresses, not file systems. Thanks in advance.

Cannot Create File When That File Already Exists Installation Error
Hi, I'm running a test install of MSCRM on a VPC and I'm getting an error message that says Action Microsoft.Crm.Setup.Server.ConfigureServiceVirtualDirAction failed. Cannot create a file when that file already exists. It gives me the option to Retry, which immediately fails and displays the error again, and to Cancel, which will end the installation process early and show me a log, but the log doesn't say what file it is attempted to create that already exists. The VPC is the latest one (not the one that's coming out right NOW, but the last one). The server is running on S...

Store file sizes do not make sense.
I am running Exchange Enterprise 2003 sp1 My priv1.edb is 20GB's, my priv1.stm is 70GB's. All but one of my users is using Outlook 2003.

I am left wondering what is actually in the STM file when you add up all the mailboxes, it only totals approximately 18GB's. The couple of questions I have. What in the world of Microsoft is chewing up so much space? Other than moving all of the mailboxes to another server, cleaning ...

System Offline - Outlook Hangs
Office 2007 Ultimate XP Pro SP3 I had an Internet connectivity problem and had to take my computer offline. When I started Outlook I got a message from the tray icon saying Outlook could not reach the server and would be working offline. Then it turned into a different icon and the mouse over tip says "Microsoft Outlook is synchronizing folders." Outlook is "Not Responding". The status bar says "Send/Receive Status 60%". Is there a problem using Outlook offline? Why does it say it is synchronizing folders when there isn't anything to synchronize them wi...

Automatic file associasion, (with no install)
Hi, Is there a way/default or behaviour that would enable me to associate a file extension with a program without installing anything? The extension would of course be totally new and not replace existing ones, the program would be in the same folder, (probably). I want to transport the files on my USB key from PC to PC but I don't want to install the app everytime. And the default windows dialog box asking the user to choose an app is a bit ugly and time consuming. Maybe something like an Autorun.inf setting would allow me to do that? But then the user can disable the Autorun. An...

Hiding and Un-Hiding Data fields

Is there a way that I can have certain feilds hidden until a toggle button or something of the like is clicked? Basically I want have three choices of buttons: Year, Quarter, and Month. What I ideally want to happen is when someone selects the button for year, a hidden drop down menu appears where they can then choose from the available years to filter through the query.

How do I hide gaps in an Excel 2007 chart?
I have a bar chart that is showing gaps and i don't want them. The select data > hidden and empty cell button does not give an option to hide gaps. I think by default they are hidden but if you even click on this to see what it does the gaps are shown and no way to turn off. Hi, If you hide the actual rows then with the Plot visible cells only setting on the gaps will be removed. In xl2007 the setting is on the Select Data dialog, Hidden/empty cells button.
