Problem writing to an "ini" file in Access 2007

I have been trying to use Access 2007 VBA to write values to an ini file. 
Here is my code:

System.PrivateProfileString("OurInformation.ini", TypeOfData, VariableName) 
= VariableValue

This works fine in Word 2007 but I keep getting a 429 error in Access 
("ActiveX component can't create object").

Why can't I write and read from an ini file in Access when I can in Word? 
Should I be using some other code to write/read to an ini file?

System.PrivateProfileString is .NET code, which Access doesn't support. It's 
native language is VBA, which is much more like Visual Basic Classic.

Try this:

Just follow the simple instructions to incorporate it into your database.

Word 2007 Scrolls when Minimized
In Windows 7, when I minimize an open Word 2007 document to the Task Bar (by clicking on the "dash" in the upper right hand corner), and when I then click on the Task Bar to re-display the Word application, my viewing position within the Word document has shifted. (The scroll bar stays in the same spot, but it has usually scrolled out of the visible window.) This happens pratically every time. (Documents having 40 to 60 pages.)

Initialization file for File Manager
Hey Friends I created a file manager application using CListCtrl. It has 4 columns, 1. File Name 2. Date 3. Description 4. File Path I want to save the new files added to the file manager by user.

Can anyone tell me, how to save and load into a file and then to update the CListCtrl? Thanks in advance Assume a text file.

I run from service process with user rights (when user is logged) and in this process I create socket (CAsyncSocket::Create(port);). And I get WSAEPROVIDERFAILEDINIT error. When I run this process manually everything is ok. What is wrong? There are issues of server privileges involved. One thing you might try is to use other than the LocalService account to run the service. joe On Tue, 11 Oct 2005 17:37:45 +0200, ragi <> wrote: >I run from service process with user rights (when user is logged) and in >this process I create socket (CAsyncSocket::Create(port)...

We were unable to obtain online statements from our brokerage firm (Scottrade), and clicking on the "update internet information" link didn't solve the problem. So, we contacted our brokerage firm and they sent us a new fipartnr.ini for Money 2003 & 2004. (We have Money 2000). I renamed the old file, copied the new file into the same directory, then opened Money. Our version of Microsoft Money 2000 seems unable to read this new file, since it no longer gives me a suggestion for _any_ financial institution when I attempt to add a new account. This makes me wonder, did the...

It adds 14 categories as trended, only about 6 of them I actually want. But I still won't add dining out to trends.
