Unable to run SETUP.EXE /ForestPrep
I'm trying to install the first Exchange 2003 Enterprise server in our
domain/AD. Since the AD server is located in another region, I used a VPN to
setup the server and connect to the AD. All went well, including the
ForestPrep, the DomainPrep and the first installation. During the
installation the VPN got disconnected due to malfunctioning hardware. Ever
since the Exchnage box is one disaster. Exchange Server fails to start (IS
and MTA service fail), the System manager keeps telling me I can not access
anything. So I did a DisasterRecovery setup, all went right except for the ...design templates
Once I download a new design template (Letterhead), how do I make it
available to all new documents. Currently, I can use the new template for
one document. However, when I import any data, it disappears. Then, when I
go to choose a publication design, the template is not available.
How can I make new/downloaded design templates available from the
publication designs window?
Are you asking about those from the Office web site? Once the download is complete,

In theory, as many as you want, but in practice, only as many as you use.

I want to set up an introductory page for an Access 2007 project. On this
page would be some instructions and links to different pages with the usual
form entries. Each of these pages would be different enough to warrant their
own page and fields, but there would be similarities between all pages that
need to keep them in the same database.
I have that introductory page with instructions and links to eight new pages.
Fields 1-3 on each of the eight pages would contain identical types of

Here is one way.
Link your spinbutton to an unused cell (I use) A15. Set the max to 20. Then
in code, set the real cell's value like so

Range("A16").Value = Range("A15").Value / 10
Private Sub SpinButton1_SpinDown()

I already have a couple of macros that sort a particular sheet by one of two columns.
I have them attached to buttons which replace the normal column heading in those two columns.
That works fine, but doesnt look very elegant.
How do I attach a macro to a normal column heading cell, so it doesnt look any different
to the other column headings that dont have macros attached, except with say an underline
under the text to indicate that you can sort on those columns ?
Not that easy to search for that using google etc.
Don't use buttons.

I recently had a problem with one of my XPath expressions which led me
to believe there might be a bug in XmlNode, although it could be by
design since I didn't find anything in the KB.
Consider the the code appended below. The function CleanEmptyElements
removes all empty elements from the document using a XPath expression.
As you will notice in the code, I add two empty elements. If you check
the resulting testXml.xml file, the "SpecialEmptyElement" element,

For the past several months I have been having a problem with Outlook 2002
not closing completely.
After shutting down Outlook there is almost always a process left running in
memory as shown by the task manager.
I first discovered this when I was shutting down WinXP - a warning dialog
would pop-up giving me the opportunity to close Outlook.
If I open Outlook several times, that same number of separate processes are
left running in memory - and at shut down I have to go through that many
dialogs before Windows will actually shut down.
Is this a known problem?

I'd like to update all of the fields in my document when the doc is opened. To do this, I have put ActiveDocument.Fields.Update in the AutoOpen() macro.
This works, except for the fields that are dependant on the number of pages in the document.
By examining the value of the "Number of pages" property in ActiveDocument.BuiltInDocumentProperties when the macro runs, I see that the number of pages is 3 ( there are actually 26 in my test document ) when the macro runs. If I manually run the macro, the number of pages in this property is correct.
