AfterUpdate Problem

I need to flash an "RE-ORDER ALERT" message after inventory level falls below 
re-order level. The message only flashes up when I move to a next record 
and back after a DoCmd.Save. 

I need the message to flash immediate after a Save. 

Note. The message is a flashing label on the form. 

Thank you.

Perhaps you could code it to actually flash before DoCmd.Save is processed.  
Once you're into that code string, it will be run.

Or, maybe consider a Message Box.  I like this idea because it forces the 
user to interact with the reorder message.  No one can say "I didn't notice

Sharkbyte's comment about a msgbox is a good one.

But I'd also put a menu item on the main form running a form based on
a query showing all items which require reordering.  This way it's
real easy for the appropriate person to take a look once a day or so
and do the reordering.

Tab control problems
I am creating a form that has 2 tabs on it, one for entering packing data, the other for entering nutritional data. I now want to divide up the fields from my database onto the 2 tabs, some fields are for one, some are for the other. I have gotten a lot of the fields in the right place and everything looked good, but then all of a sudden certain of the controls were appearing on BOTH tabs, and when I would delete it from one tab, it would be deleted from the form completely. This is probably something extremely simple, but I am just not seeing it. Thanks in advance for the help. ...

Outlook Rules problem #3
I have set up a couple of basic rules to screen and move incoming mail to other folders on my pc. The rules work fine most of the time and the logic seems ok but every so often messages which should have been moved stay in the inbox, BUT when I re-run the rules manually with "run now", the emails ARE moved, suggesting that the rules themselves are OK! This behaviour is unpredictable. Does anyone have any suggestions? Many thanks Geoff Sussex UK ...

Solver Problem with IF function
Hello All, I am trying to determine the most cost effective cell phone rate plan based on the amount of minutes a user has in the past month. I have set up a table of rates (i.e. 49.99 per month, 1000 plan minutes, .35 per minute for overage usage, 59.99, 69.99, etc) and I am attempting to set up solver to minimize the total cost of the bill by changing the user's plan to the most cost effective plan rate. Currently cost is calculated by adding the plan cost (49.99 per month) and adding the overage usage (minutes over plan X .35). The problem I have is building the calculation for the o...

sscanf problem.
I know it's not really an MFC problem, but it is in an MFC based APP. The followng code: char cs[3]; BYTE b; m_EntryMac[0].GetWindowText(cs, 2); sscanf(cs, "%X", &b); This code causes a fault at the sscanf line, but only in release mode. Works fine in debug mode. The m_EntryMac[0] is an edit field allowing only 2 characters of entry. So it is trying to convert the users input of something like 'A1' into 0xA1. Does that make sense? Anyway, why doesn't it work at runtime in release mode? Help appreciated. Regards Control Freq schrieb: > > ...

Hi, I've been following KB307917 faithfully as I migrate my old exchange 2000 to a new box with Exchange 2003. I have a FE/BE setup, FE was already upgraded to E2k3, but still running Win2k. All remote services were working fine from the outside, including OWA, POP3 and IMAP (all 3 with SSL). Today, I hit the point where I removed the public folder replicas from the old server, rehomed the RUS, and set the new server as Master of Routing group. All seemed to go well, except, OWA still works from outside (and inside) but POP3 and IMAP do not work remotely. If I VPN in, I can get mail...
