I am using Access 2003
I created a preventative maintenance (pm) database that requires the
operator to enter the date when a pm operation is completed. The operators
doing this are not typist and I am finding a lot of error with date data
entry. Such as reversing month and day or putting in the wrong year. For
example: when the date should have been 2/4/08 - the employee is typing
4/2/08 or putting in the wrong year.
This date is an important field as future operations are keyed off of this
date. I want to make the date field limited to "NO date that is greater then

Is it possible to create some sort of custom or drop down box which
contains controls or check boxes so as to create a standardised list of
qualifications the data entry clerk can choose from?
For example, i would like a cell to have a drop down box, which is a

In the textbook, there is a sentence that "Default XML

otherwise specified, a schema prescribes that loal elements and attributes
must be "unqualified". What does "unqualified" mean? Could you please giv eme
an example? Finnaly, could you please tell me what's purpose of using these
two things? Thanks a lot!

I am running XP-Pro SP3 and considering upgrading from IE7 to IE8.
I have read all the feature and benefit articles from MS, but have one
question that remains unanswered.
In IE8 there is mention of being able to restore previously viewed websites
or something to that effect. I think this is on a drop down menu somewhere.
1) Does In-private viewing prevent this?
2) Does manually deleting your complete browsing history clear this?

I am trying to use Microsoft Query to get data from my SQL 2000 databases.
The problem is that I have a few columns with names that conflict with

is done and cannot be changed.) This is causing a keyword syntax error
within the Query application.
Oddly enough, even if I do not select the column the error still appears.
And when you look at all the columns available, the keyword named column
shows up in boldface.

I have a large amount of data on a spread sheet which has been sorted and subtotaled (using the “Subtotal” function on the data menu). On each subtotal row I would like to have formulas that use the results of that row’s subtotals (ie divide the value of one subtotal by the value of another subtotal on the same row). At the moment I am creating the formulas on one subtotal row and then copying them to each of the remaining subtotal rows – one row at a time. This seems to be cumbersome – is there a faster way?
