custom paper size problem

I have to create a custom envelope size for a client. I know how to do it
via the windows printers dialogs. That's no biggie. But when I distribute
the client mdb out to his workstations, do I need to (or have him do it)
create the same one on each workstation or is there code I can write in ms
access (2k) that can create a new printer form (I've searched and cannot
find anything)? I can see that if we have to do this manually it's going to
be a problem every time they set up a new machine.

Never mind. As I work on this part of this project I'm realizing that this
is far more complex that I thought due to varying printer drivers and OS
setups. I didn't realize that this issue was so very printer
make/model/driver dependent.

Custom Entity Relationship CRM 3.0
I have created a new custom entity (A) for which I need to create two referential relationships to other custom entities (B) & (C). (A) is the primary entity in both cases. The relationship between (A) and (B) acts normally. The relationship between (A) and (C) doesn't. When I try to add a (C) record from (A), (A) displays two records in the (C) lookup. One "record" displays data from system fields (created on and status). The second "record" displys data from the primary field. I am not able to access (C) record from the associated view in (A), but I can a...

Maximum practical Outlook 2003 .pst file size
Pre 2003, there was a 2GB pst/ost file size limit. 2003 and beyond have supposedly expanded that maximum .pst file size to 20GB ( ). Can anyone give me their experiences with large .pst files in the wild? I've got a user with 10GBs of mail spread over about 7 .pst files. One of the .pst files is over 2GB and could potentially be pushed up to 4GB in the near future. The user reports that Outlook will occasionaly perform slowly and even freeze copmletely. I suspect that it's caused (or at least exacerbated) by the .pst files being fragmented all ov...

Listbox problem
I have the following code setup. My form has 5 listboxes on them named LB1 thru LB5. All listboxes are single select.

It will not deselect the entry.

Problems connecting after changing a username
I'm having an issue with a user account. On our Exchange server we have POP3 server running. I set up an user account and tested the settings for the POP3 account. Everything tested fine.

Tracking customer orders when receiving stock
With our current POS system we can place items on order for a particular customer (whether we are holding the stock or not) and when we generate purchase orders the system automatically pops up letting us know we have pending orders for customers. We can then generate a purchase order based on this information. When we receive the stock, we can print out a report for that order that lists what stock needs to be allocated to which customers. Is there a way with RMS that we can do this? Unfortunately it is a regular occurance that our stock levels can be incorrect, for instance we may have a 0 ...

Odd question re: workbook file sizes.
I've been tracking the performance of two IRA accounts for almost a year now. The number of stocks is almost identical in each account. I created a set of Excel workbooks for each account: Acct 1-Q1 and 2. and Acct 2-Q1 and 2. are complete. They have the same number of pages and are the same approximate size in kb. I'm still adding to the next two workbooks Acct 1-Q3 and 4 and Acct 2- Q3 and 4, but again they have the same number of pages. I'm just cut and pasting into blank worksheets data from a CSV spreadsheet I download from Fidelity. I just happened to notice the size ...

Outlook E-Mail Encryption Problem
Outlook (2002) refuses to encrypt an e-mail message to a client who uses Lotus Notes R5 in Win 2000, even though in the client's Internet Explorer: Tools/Internet Options/Content/Certificates dialog, both her certificate (on the Personal Tab) and our certificate (on the Other People Tab) are present and have the correct serial numbers.
