Must buy new computer...Ideas?
Hello to all! Finally my over 10-1/2 year old Dell desktop's extreme
slowness has seriously gotten on my nerves and I'm now looking for a new
one. (Surprisingly, it's working pretty well otherwise...)
Maybe this isn't the right forum? But beside the usual things like RAM and
HD GBs, are there things I should be sure to have...or be careful NOT to
have on a desktop? After n ot looking into computers for over a decade I
feel like a Martian in the Earth. lol!
Also, is it possible to transfer to the new one ALL my stuff, including
programs, etc.? Do you thin...Populate Fields
On my Access form have 2 fields. Code and Code Description. The code field
does a look up on a table and allows the user to select the code they want.
The table contains the code and code description fields only.
What I'd like to be able to do, is if a user selects code A1 (for example)
the code description field automatically populates with the code
description. How can I achieve this?
Is the control for the code field a combo box? If so, you can change the row
source to include the description in an additional column as long as you can

How does one set the default properties applied when
creating new email folders? Currently, when I create a
new folder, it is created with the AutoPreview turned on
by default. I'd like to change that do that it is left
off by default. It's something of a pain to create a new
folder and then go in to customize it's properties.
You can do this by editing the Messages view; View-> Arrange By-> Current
View-> Define Views...
You might want to define a new view yourself and apply that view on first
use of that folder.

I have over 1,000 address records in a workbook and the street address column
contains the house number and the street name. I want to create a separate
column for the house number so that I can sort the data by street name. Are
there any shortcuts to doing this without cutting and pasting all the numbers
into a new column?
Select the entire column and use "Text to Column" command under Data menu.

I just installed Outlook 2007 on my new PC and for some reason the new
messages I received can only be received when I press the SEND/RECEIVE
BUTTON. My Outlook at work receives these new mail messages as they are
received. So how can I configure the system to make that happen?

There are two settings within the accounts
1) Send on starting
2) Auto send/receive every xx minutes - set this for 10 minutes

I understand that when I change a duration on a fixed duration task, MS
Project is programmed to change the work hours and not the units. That's
causing me big problems in keeping both durations and hours fixed. The
projects I work on have to have both duration and work fixed not just one or
the other. If I change the duration on a fixed duration task I'd like to see
the units change because I want to know how many people I need to throw at

I am using a subform within a form to have users update certain fields in the
record where the rest remiain locked. On the Main form when the list box
(which is bound to a query) is used to select the record set to display in
the subform it sometimes takes an old record and assigns a new value to the
record. For example it changes the Period field from 9 to 10. Taking a
record created in period 9 and assigning a period ten to it which is the

How can I create a mask (like in Access) so the separators are already

You could use a worksheet event that changes the entry to a date. Chip Pearson

What would be the best tool to add a new field in the AP invoice screen to
deploy to a client? Extender? Modifier?
the ideal would be to add a field for "Job No." that is text info so the
user can get some info out on certain jobs that they are paying bills for.
You can use any tool, really, to accomplish this:

then use VBA and ADO or DUOS to store and retrieve the data.
