Cannot open excel file on doubleclick ... HELP
I have this strange problem on 3 computers:
When I doubleclick on an excel file (in windows explorer, or a shortcut)
excel opens, but it only shows the top and bottom bar, the middle shows the
desktop of the PC.
- I get this when opening a file from the network, and from the C drive
- I get this with ALL excel files
- there is nothing in the startup folder, nor macro's, ....
So I think the problem is excel....
btw, al users are using excel 2002 (xp)
I already tried a repair/reinstall, didn't help
I tried the /regserver trick: didn't help

Not with a formula - you'll need to use VBA. This should do it:

I am making a serious attempt to use Win7-x64 although something happens
nearly every day to make me want to go back to XP Pro x64 :-(
The latest event is the silent failure of an application to run. It has
been working for weeks but last night it just didn't run (it's kicked off
by the task scheduler). I then discovered it wouldn't run manually either.
I re-booted and all is well again, for how long I don't know.
There is nothing in the event log as far as I can see - although that's
almost impossible to find your way around.

I tried the trial 2004 version of Money and didn't bite.
It saved my file but now won't recognize my password from
2002. Is MS trying to force those who use the free trial
to buy 2004 by saving to an unknown password?
Please help me recover my file!
When the trial upgraded your data file it warned you that Money files, once
upgraded, were not backward compatible. See

I'm guessing this is a really easy question. I want my application to
be maximised when it is executed. At present in the PreCreateWindow(),
i'm setting cs.cx and cs.cy to appropriately large values. However, I'm
sure there must be a better way.
What's wrong with setting cx and cy in PrecreateWindow ?
Anyway, this works
BOOL CMainFrame::PreCreateWindow(CREATESTRUCT& cs)

cs.cx = screen.right;
cs.cy = screen.bottom;
cs.y = screen.top;

I have an application developed under VC++ 5 that I want to install properly
under Vista (i.e. not rely on virtualisation etc). I understand that I need
to create a manifest for my program that will specify:
(a) the execution level it requires (which is 'asInvoker')
(b) What code dependencies it has (DLLs it calls into?)
Actually do I even need to bother with (b)? Is this required for Vista? Is
it just (a) that I need?
If I do need, (b): the application (call it XYZ.EXE) is built using the

screen is the small toolbar to refresh the data. The report does not open.

I am using ACCESS 2000 and checking to see if I can store .pdf file in the

If not in ACCESS 2000 is it possible with ACCESS 2007?
Message posted via AccessMonster.com
Why would you want to?
Why not store the PDF file in a folder and just store the hyperlink to the
files location in the database.
Storing other files in an Access database, even if it was possible, would
quickly lead to a huge and inefficient database file.

When I past one word file into another word file the font and spacing changes
and it doesn't appear to be consistent with either document.
By default, the formatting of the target document determines the formatting
of pasted text (unless the pasted text has direct formatting applied to it).
However, in recent versions of Word, you could try experimenting with the
Paste Options (which show as you paste). For more on paste options, see

Can I place a shortcut icon to the Excel Help menu on my desktop?
If so, how?
(Perhaps, Excel must be opened for this to work?)
Just browse to the Excel help file. Its name and location will vary
depending on your version but in Excel 2003 its name is XLMAIN11.CHM and
it's in the OFFICE11\1033 folder (for English language versions).

when creating a pivot chart from a pivot table, there appears only a very
basic chart. What is basically missing are the drop-down buttons in which one
can select the variables to display.
In addition drag-and-drop within the table does not work any longer (not
surprising, as the buttons are missing), but it does not work any longer as
well from the variable list. All configuration is now done via the "PivotCart
However, this filter pane is very unfortunate, since it does not display the
names of the variables in the diagram any longer. So, if you have...multiple users with same domain logon name

that is not an editable field.

I need to call Excel from within Word with parameters. Can you help with the

I'm aware of two ways to save a record when you want to force a save with
1. If Me.Dirty Then DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord
2. If Me.Dirty Then Me.Dirty = False
Are they both equivalent, or is one better than the other?
Thanks in advance,
RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord saves the record in the active form (whichever
Me.Dirty = False is explicit about which form's record to save, so it's more
reliable if multiple forms happen to be open.
