with ref to the dialog editor question

A few days ago I posted a question about "dialog editor." (please see below) Perhaps I was asking the wrong question.

I'm trying to create a form to input data  similar to the one found by doing a <DATA-Form> but with my own comments etc and using
the targets as different parts of the spreadsheet.   Please can anyone give me a clue on how to start

Maybe this link from MS:

You may want to see if John Walkenbach's enhanced dataform is sufficient.

You can even buy access to the code for $20 (USA) if you want to tweak it some.

Is there a way to tell that a modal dialog is open?
Howdy, I have an MFC dialog app that has a notification area (or system tray, or whatever we are calling it this week) icon. Per customer spec, when the user right clicks this icon he or she gets a menu that includes an "exit" choice which causes the app to send a WM_CLOSE message to itself. The problem is that sometimes I get hangs or crashes if the user selects this menu choice when a modal dialog is showing over the dialog window. Is there a clean way to either tell that a modal dialog is open and thereby know to disable this menu choice, or to ensure that any open modal dialo...

beginner query question
hello to all I would like to restate a question I posted a few days ago in different terms. I received excellent advice from Allen Browne and John Vinson but, as a beginner, I'm having trouble implementing their suggestions. I have a form that shows a student's ID and name in the header. In the body of the form are 40 textboxes that will each accept an integer from 1 to 5. These are evaluation scores for 40 different criteria. The fields may also be left blank if they do not pertain to that particular student. I've called these 40 textboxes s1, s2, s3 .... s40. The fo...

can't install equation editor
Hello, I am trying to install the equation editor from my Microsoft Word v.X install CD, but have been stymied so far. I first insert the CD, double click on the value pack folder, and open the value pack installer. Everything seems to work fine to that point. I then select the Equation Editor from the available option in the value pack installer, and I click continue. After a couple of seconds of processing, an error message comes up: Error creating file. 1008:5,-5000 Access denied error "OK" is the only option, which then brings up "An error occurred that prevented the pr...

Question re: Outlook & Outlook Express
I use Outlook for all my emails & Outlook Express for news groups. Each has a different email address. When I "Reply to Group" in Outlook Express, no problem. When I select "Reply", I am prompted for an Outlook profile ( I have two) which, as I understand it, will cause the message to be sent with the Outlook profile and its corresponding email address that I select. Do I need to create a profile or email account or both in Outlook Express or add a profile to Outlook? Either way it would be a different email address than the two in Outlook.

Turn Off Updating of Ref Fields in Word 2007
I have a document that someone used Ref fields to link to bookmarked figures and hyperlinked them to the paragragh thus inserting a copy of the figure everywhere they inserted the field. I unlinked the extra graphics from the paragraph but not from the actual text e.g. "Figure VII 2-2." Now the document has updated all of the fields and reinserted the figures back in. If it was one or two no big deal but we are talking about probably 75-100 extra graphics being inserted into the document.

Macro to switch to another sheet, grab ref to any cell, paste ref in current sheet??
I am looking for a way (either macro or VBA) to perform one simple task: while in *any cell* of your choice in the current worksheet, switch to another specific sheet, choose *any* cell, grab a reference to that cell (not its value), switch back to the first worksheet and slap in the reference of the cell in the other sheet. This would be the automated equivalent of doing the following manually: 1) Select *any cell* (say *F11*) in the current sheet (Call it "*Destination*"). 2) Press "=" (no "ENTER") 3) Click the tab for the other sheet (call it "*Source*&...

I implemented copy and paste for CF_UNICODETEXT. But I have some questions: 1.

Cross-Ref to Excel Chart
When I insert a cross reference to the caption of a linked Excel chart, the cross reference inserts the chart as well as 'Figure 6' or whatever. I can delete the chart from the cross reference, but when I print the document it comes back again. I can't see anything in the field codes causing this, though there is a /* MERGEFORMAT switch that I don't recognise I have a bunch of these linked charts in the document, and not all of them behave like this. It doesn't happen with spreadsheet data that I have linked to the Word doc, only the charts. oops, pr...

Hardcoding print dialog box printer...
Hi all. I'm not really much of a C++ programmer but I need to modify some old code to print directly to the Adobe Distiller printer installed on the users machine. I have been able to get new devname and devmode structures using some code I found on the MS site that changes the default print driver on the dialog box to the Adobe Distiller, but when I don't get a good return when I make the GetDefaults call. It does work if I display the dialog box but I don't want the dialog box to show up in this case. The code works fine if I remove the new code to change the print driver ...

Copy an image in a dialog to clipboard
Hi, Hi, I am creating a dialog based application in MFC and trying to copy an image present in a bitmap dlg item rectangle to clipboard. I am encountering a problem when used the following source code. When only this application is executed then it copies the correct image. But when this application runs in background and any other application(say MS Word) is opened on top of this, a region of MS Word is copied into clipboard instead of the image from the dialog. But My aim is to copy the image only from the dialog , even though it runs in back ground. This is the segment of code I ...
