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...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.

If you had a previously saved November workbook open and made some changes
then File>Save As and named it December, November workbook will still be on

Unless you saved it as November with the changes.
From where did you open November workbook?
It will still be there.

I have an Access 2003 table created by importing an Excel spreadsheet. One
field in this table contains the filenames of digital images in various
formats. These filenames are of varying lengths and have extensions such as
..jpg, .jpeg or .tif (other file extensions are also possible). For example,
A red car.jpg
A blue bus.tif
How can I write an query expression to strip off the extension, and which
will work regardless of the length of the extension? Essentially, I want to
drop the dot and everything that follows so that I end up with,
A red car
A blue bus

Can anyone help?
Windows XP crashed and I was forced to reinstall the
whole thing. Before doing so, I managed to export my
personal folders to a .pst file that I put on a cdRom.
When I reinstalled Outlook and tried to import that .pst
file from the cdRom, I got an error message saying that
access was denied to the file. I then saved it to my
hard drive and tried again. This time I was able to
import the file but all it did was put an empty folder in
my list. The information that was supposed to be there
does not seem to be.

Currently I'm downsizing our office, and moving to a new location. I'm

When I start Outlook, the "New", "forward", "reply" and "reply to all"

the Outlook application is not launched which is almost certainly related to
this. I think I'm missing something very simple here!

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.
