How to recover data from OL2003 OST file when Exchange Server is no longer available
After Exchange Server (in Windows Small Business Server 2003) is no longer
available, I still have an OST file (created in OL 2003), just under 2 GB in
size. Can one recover the data from this OST file?
Yes, you can get the data out of it. Do you still have the exchange profile
or very recently deleted it? if so, it's a matter of moving the stuff to a
pst. If not, you need a tool - see

I am putting together a booklet which is going to be printed at a commercial

I have designed a report to link to graphics files. Somewhere along the
line I read that .wmf or .emf files are best suited to the purpose. I think
that was in Access Help, but I can't find it now. Anyhow, is there a reason
for choosing one graphics file format over another for this purpose? The
files are images of handwritten signatures, which means the resolution
requirements are not as high as they would be for something like photos, in
case that matters in selecting the format.

Having tried many different combinations of Page Setup and Print Setup there
does not appear to be a method of creating an A5 Booklet (folded center),

What was a simple task within every earlier version of Publisher appears to
have been missed from the new 2007 version.
