Apologies in advance for a beginner question! (I'd really appreciate
a pointer to a good tutorial or book for GUI beginner apps. I'm using
I've made a simple MFC dialog app. It does stuff after a button is
clicked, and shows progress text in an edit box. Unfortunately the
edit box text is not updated when I want it to be. Although the calls
to UpdateData return success, the new text is not actually shown until
the "do stuff" function is complete; that is, all of my progress text
is shown too late.
I've probably put the call to the "do stuff" functio...can not open a xls file by double clicking

When accessing FRx reports from the Webport the reports are opened up in an
Internet Explorer window afetr double clicking on the report. If we then go
back to the Webport and double click on a new report it is opened in the same
Interent Explorer window as the first report. What is suggested is that when
a second report is opened it displays in a new Internet Explorer window so
that both reports can be viewed simultaneously.

...Excel open NOT in compatability mode
When I go to open a new Excel application I want it to be in the xlsx file
format. However, everytime I open Excel it is in the 97-2003 file format. I
go to the Excel options and change it to the xlsx format close Excel, but
when I reopen a NEW Excel application it's in the 97-2003 format. This
option that I changed was how to it saves not how it opens, that is what I am
trying to find out. Is there a way to default Excel 2007 to open in the 2007
file format, because it always wants to open in the compatability format?

Have you tried using the "Sent To" view on the Sent Items folder? That's
the default view for that folder, usually, but you may have switched to some
other view without realizing it.

This is the similar problem as mentioned by Delbert on 12/12/2005 that
whenever they open a particular Excel file, it gives them a "Send Report

I can run it as a scheduled task. It looks like this:

Thank you very much for any help.
In your batch file, you could open a workbook which contains a macro that
opens your workbook, switches to the desired sheet, and then even closes
itself. Something like the following, in module ThisWorkbook:

My docs have attributes called "order", with a default value of 1. So if
there is no "order" attribute, the program shall use the value 1.
Implementing this with XmlTextReader was harder than expected. Since
GetAttribute() returns null if the attribute isn't found, and null can
be interpreted as false, I thought this would do it:
decimal order = 1;
order = Convert.ToDecimal(r.GetAttribute("order"));
I get the error:
