Ewww....  :-)

That sort-of works, but it's not a good way to do it :-)

First, hit your Show/Hide button so you can see what you are doing.  You
will see the paragraph marks appear.

Then create one blank paragraph in the document.

Insert your .PNG into that paragraph.  Word will treat it as a very large
character.

Now, use Format>Paragraph to centre the paragraph.  The paragraph and the
picture will be accurately centred on the page and remain that way.

The way you are doing it fills the document with blank paragraphs and tabs:
it's unstable and leads to document problems :-)

Hope this helps

How to find DSN info in an Excel 2003 File
I've got a project that's driving me bonkers. I have a series of Excel files that use DSN to update/refresh information in them. I have DSNs on my system for most of them, however, there are a handful of files, for which no one here knows the connection information or name for the DSNs it uses. I need any combination of the following: 1. Where is the DSN information (System DSNs apparently) stored for each Excel file? 2. How can I find the DSN information the file is trying to use (to create the DSN myself)? Thanks ...

Outlook 2003 upgrade overwrites data file without warning?
I just upgraded to Outlook 2003 and seemed to have lost all my previous mail folders I had saved. There was no warning or message saying that the mail data file was to be overwritten. I assumed the upgrade would never delete or over write the previously existing data file from a previous version, at least not without a message asking the user if he really wants to do it. Is my previous mail lost? I can't find another pst file other than the new empty one just created. I've never seen an upgrade do this before. look for your pst files. That should bring them back. >----...

Can't open files after backup

I don't understand how or why that happened, but some of them won't open. I get the error message in Excel that the file is in an unrecognizable format, although it's not. Is there any way *some* of them got corrupt? The filz sizes are still there and such, so I know they're th...

Embedded pictures
Hello! I noticed that the when we set the picture property of a button or another control as embedded, it takes a lot of place. Is there an explication that show why the Access file encrease in size by more than the picture size (even if it is a bitmap, a format that is normaly heavy) Exemple: An mdb without picture would take 4 MB the same file with pictures would increase to 40 MB with only 400 KB of pictures. In JPEG format. Is it because Access uses a non efficient compression to include the image file? Thank you in advance for any suggestion! PS: I know that I can set the pictur...

Visual Studio tools should have separate config files for DLLs
The Visual Studio tools (Developer Toolkit) for Dynamics GP have one major problem. If you create multiple DLLs as Add Ins for an installation of Dynamics GP, they all need to share the same Dynamics.config file. This makes it difficult to create components that can be sold separately because you wouldn't know what the Dynamics.config file is composed of. What if two third-party developers use identically named application settings. That would be a problem. So, there needs to be a way to tie the config file directly to the DLL instead of to the Dynamics.exe file. -------------...
