Can I create a thread safe Winform User Control
I know that if I want to update a Windows Form Control from a worker
thread I need to check InvokeRequired on the control and jump through some
hoops. I can get that all to work. But, I wonder if I can make a User Control
which inherits from for example, System.Windows.Forms.Label, and has the
correct thread safe set method built in? In fact, why are Windows Forms
controls not thread safe? It seems like it would have been pretty easy to
build in, at least for the their simple properties, and would save a fair
amount of fiddly work on the developer's part.

I keep getting an error message, "Notes Termination skipped because a

The error goes away on clicking 'OK', but keeps recurring time and
again. Nothing seems to get rid of this annoying message. Tried to
uninstall the Outlook conenctor and install the new version of Outlook

Can anybody tell me the way to get rid of this problem?

-----------------------...Can you make a scatter graft
I am wanting to make a scatter graft or dot graft but do not know how
Put your X values into one column, and your Y values into the next
column, and if you want to name the series of points, put the label into
the cell just above the first Y value. Select the data, and run the
chart wizard (the little chart icon on the standard toolbar, or go to
Insert menu > Chart). In step one, choose an XY Scatter type, then
continue through the wizard.

Leanne ...Have excel queries use current directory
I have a workbook with 6 excel saved queries and pivot tables based on an
Access Database. Each month I copy the entire contents of the folder to a new
folder (example DbPop200404Apr gets copied to DBPop200405May). The access
database gets updated and I want the excel pivot tables and charts to reflect
this data. The queries on each worksheet still relate back to the original,
even though I edit each DQY to reflect the new directory. I have to go each
worksheet and reconstruct the query.
How do you make excel automatically use the DQYs in the CURRENT directory

...Can Excel do this?
I am using Excel 2007.
I am wanting to plot data for categories in a certain dept such as plumbing.
I have about 10 different categories for which I plot out data for "year to
date" and "week to date".
"week to date" data is in a different section from "year to date" data.
Obviously, the data sorted for "week to date" will be different for the
"year to date" data.
How can you get Excel to retrieve data from cells for a category like
"toilets" so I can plot the data on one graph..

can hide it.
