Double vs Decimal?
This is a spin off from the thread
"Immediate Window: Annoying Notation?"
It's a *really* big deal to me all-of-a-sudden bc it sounds like
my current SOP might be at variance with good practice.
Lotta years ago (JET 3.something) and for reasons not recollected
I settled on Double as my data type of choice for big numbers
with lots of decimal places.
Now it's sounding like Decimal is the preferred vehicle, but I'm
a little confused - no... make that a *lot* confused. If
Decimal is so "right", how come VBA doesn't support it directly

This subject is the same as a previous topic. There didn't seem to be
a conclusion in the last discussion of this problem, so I decided to
address it once again for those who may still be suffering from this
issue. Nonetheless, it's probably worth it for you to read the
previous discussion for additional background and context information.

I'm using O2003. For a contact, there is the Due by Field. There is
also a Reminder Time field. If you update the Due By field, it updates
the Reminder Time field. However, if you update the Reminder Time
field, it does not update the Due By field. By default for a contact,
you have access to the Due By field. The Reminder field is avaialble,
but you have to manually add it.
In Tasks, it seems to work the same in that if you update the Due By
field, it updates the Reminder Time field. However, if you update the
Reminder Time field, it does not update the Due By field.

I'm implementing a "doubly" linked list data structure. My

My list nodes will be C++ structures defined like this :

Alternatively, I could use a C++ object to implement this
node. ie :

I purchased 2005 last year, installed it and then uninstalled it because I

archive. Does 2006 have better performance and file size handling than 2004?

Assuming that I have an old domain either 2000 or 2003 (with Exchange). The
basic concept is that I don't want to migrate automatically but I want to

to avoid all the garbage and to have a cleaner setup. I don't mind recreating
all accounts because I can script this but the only real problem will be

can anyone recommend some good hosted exchange provider(s) if hosted is
in fact better ? thank you

I have Access databases in 2002 format. I am upgrading to Office 2003. The
question is is there a difference between the 2002 format and the 2002-2003
I am planning on leaving my programs in 2002 format but using Access
2003--any problems with this?
No problem! Access2003 is backward compatible meaning it can run earlier
versions of Access. Access2002 is not forward compatible meaning you will
not be able to run an Access2003 database from Access2002.

Most UK GP customers use the European EFT (EEFT) module which is part of

The code won't, but eventually the compiler will stop working. Don't know
if the trial will support 64 bit though.

You mean European keyboards don't have the square brackets keys?
I didn't know that!
Anyway, you can accomplish *almost* the same thing by:

And *uncheck* "Edit Directly In Cell".
Then, all you have to do is double click in the cell containing the formula.

Very interesting discovery.
To corrupt resource file (assumes APS absent):
1. Open project.
2. Open resource from project.
a. MS sees that an APS file is missing
b. MS incorrectly constructs the APS file
c. MS removes all languages except AFX_TARG_ENU
3. Edit and Save the resorce using the MS editor
4. All Languages removed.
