...Opening a unicode CSV file from Excel
I'm currently working on an application that can export data in "CSV"
format, and then launches Excel to view the CSV data. This works
perfectly ok for ascii data.
However now I have upgraded our application to use Unicode I'm running

excel with it's path on the command line I get a "This is not a

jcstoddard'...Default properties for new folders
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 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?

When I start Outlook, the "New", "forward", "reply" and "reply to all"
buttons are not active which means I can not send mail. I have no problems

this. I think I'm missing something very simple here!

I am using a subform within a form to have users update certain fields in the

(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

Excel 2007 is very slow when selecting chart data from the formula bar. For
example 8, X-Y scatter graph curves are generated from data base of
approximately 2000 lines long x 2 columns. A convienient way to edit the cell
references for each curve is to simply click onto a curve and the cell
references will appear in the formula bar. With all earlier versions of excel
including 2003, once the curve is clicked the cell reference appears in the
formula bar almost instantaneously. However when the same method is used with
excel 2007, it can take 10-20 seconds before the formular appears.
