This might be more of a GDI question, but since I'm in MFC, I'll ask:
Would BitBlt-ing to the screen repeatedly tend to lock up a program, after
alt+tabbing to another application? If so, why? This seems to be happening
to me, and I want to get to the bottom of the problem. What I have is
either a fade loop or a screen-size redraw, both based on a timer and
bitblt. Quite often, after I leave the program to go to another app, I
cannot return and must "end task".

I am seeing a little quirk on some of my desktops. It only happens
occasionally, but it happens to different models of PC. Not all the
time, but once in awhile, I have users that complain of their PC
freezing. The only remedy is to do a hard reboot. I have noticed in
these instances, that the desktop mail alert ( the preview that pops
up by the system clock when you get a new mail) is showing when it
froze. If I go into Outlook and turn off the desktop alert, then the
PC freezing stops. So, I know that the Desktop Alert is the cause of
the problem. Has anyone else ever seen this? Th...How do I put a chart into a new sheet?

Hello. This is about a SQL Server 2005 back end and Access 2007 front end.
There is a front end on each user's machine. This has to do with the locking

open once the user opens the front end until the front end closes, if the
user closes the front end at all and not everyone closes the front end when
done. There can be approximately 100 (+/-) people using the front end during
the day. Some may actually be transmitting data (transactions) and some may
not. But my thought is if the connection is a...in excel, how do i set up a spread sheet that automatically total.

do i do that?
well it depends a bit on how your data is arranged, but basically to add up
a column of numbers you use the SUM function
where A1 is cell reference of the first number that you want to add and A31
is the cell reference of the last cell you want included in the calculation.
The : basically means add up everything between A1 and A31 inclusive.
Hope this helps
