Send a common key piece of data from the first form (say the company name) to the second form page and include it in the second form

I have written a fairly big spreadsheet linking through the pages with SUM,
SUMIF and SUMPRODUCT formula's
What I am now finding is that when I update one page it doesn't update the
rest, even if I am only typing in a figure to the SUM function.
I have check and the calculations function is on automatic.
is there a fix or something that I could run to make sure that all the
formulas are working correctly.
Just a guess (since you already checked tools|options|calculation tab).

I am trying to change a field in an ACCESS table and get an error message

button is grayed out. Any ideas/suggestions are welcome.

Why won't Publisher 2007 convert my email links correctly when saved in pdf
format? It puts "mail to:" in twice automatically. It is converting website

If memory serves the Office 2007 SP1 fixed this in Publisher. The SP2 is
also now available. There have been some reports of not being able to open
existing Publisher files after installing it, and a report that a fix for
that bug is due by the end of the month....you might want to wait to install
SP2 until after the first of the month, or just install SP1.

I wonder if you have any suggestions for this. We have moved our Access
tables into Oracle and have created a MS Access Database that links to these
ODBC tables. Each of our users has a local copy of our Reporting Database
that formerly linked to Access tables, but now we want them to link to the
Ms Access Database which contains the linked ODBC tables on our shared
drive. In trying to link to already linked ODBC tables, Access gives an
error and will not link to these tables.
Is there a way to let our users link to the Access database that contains
the linked ODBC tables?

I have linked graphs from excel into my publisher document using Paste
Special. The problem is that when they paste in they reshape (I have pie
charts and they come in publisher looking like tall skinny ovals). I can fix
the shape of the charts manually after pasting them in, but when I update the
links the reshaping reverts to its original, incorrect size.
Any suggestions on how I can use the linking to excel and not have to resize
every time I update?
"Paste Special" as what format? Have you tried an image format?

I just inherited an Access 2003 database which has a linked table to

from Sharepoint it only has 5 fields, but in Access 2003 have 12 fields. It

different from Access 2003. Most of the columns are dropped. Would anyone

...to link or not to link
I have a choice of having all my data on a server and an application on a
client's machine that has tables that are linked to the database on the
server over the LAN.
Or just having the whole application on the server and the user running the
application over the network.
Everything is in Access (2003) and it is also a single user application.
Is it obvious which is best. The way I see it there is a penalty for using
linked tables, but the other way would mean that the temporary storage used
by the workspace would be over the network.
Any insight will be much appreciated.
