Lost Product Key

Hi

Please can someone tell me how I can find out who to call to get a new 
product key for my microsoft office software? I have followed instructions 
online and got to the bit where you are supposed to activate windows and 
choose the telephone option to get a telephone number but my windows is 
already activated so I don't know what to do next  - any help would be 
gratefully received.

Thank you

Jo

Generally you don't need to do anything but people always share the product
key with friends and relatives so that they too can activate their
application.

I hope this has helped.

Back up a step - *activate Windows*?? Do you mean activate *Office* and if 
so, what do you mean by already activated? If it's activated, you don't have 
to do that again.

You must have a lot of unsavory friends and relatives.

Lost Windows XP, Internet Explorer and supporting files
I somehow lost all my "Window" elements. Microsoft suggested that I try a "reinstall" which I did, but the problem was only 99% of the update downloaded and then it froze and now none of the Windows files work. Could not restore to earlier date as the download erased that option. I have been working with Microsoft and Dell to no avail. My main concern over wiping everything out and reloading from the Recovery Disk is that I will lose my "personal videos/pictures" and these can't be replaced.

problem with VK key code in win2k
Hi everyone, I would appreciate if anyone of you can help to enlighten me on this. I have a remote controller which plugs into the USB port and any buttons pressed on the remote control will generate a keyboard sequence such as CTRL+F11 for instance.

Append problem Duplicate key
Hi all This is driving me mad - am I going potty? ;-). I have a load of old records in a table called [preECS] that I want to add to another table.

The key on the new table is Specialist and ReviewDate - both of these are filled out in the preECS table and I have checked the dates to ensure no data does actually exist. It should not create a duplicate record and I am confused why I can't add these records :-(. The new table has an autonumber which I've exclud...

Change search for products
Is there a way to customize CRM so that when you search for products it searches by product id and not name? I'm referring to the "Find Products" function on the product screen.

Copying Text from Access to Excel
When I paste text from Access to Excel, not all of the data displays in Excel. Is there a limit to the amount of characters or is there a formatting trick? I'd play around with different ways to copy.. There's a strange, and documented, behavior when copying from worksheet to worksheet... If you copy the entire worksheet (click the square to the left of col A) and try to paste it to another, any cell with more than 255 characters will be truncated. BUT there is no such limit on the cells themselves. If you write a macro to individually go to each cell you can copy the full t...

Administrator appears to have lost rights to change Public Folder permissions

We had the normal issues like re-attaching mailboxes to the new user logins however everything appeared to be OK. I then decided to take this opportunity to add some new Top Level folders to the Public Folders section and re-organise things. However, on trying to create the new Top Level folders (through Outlook 2002) I...

Key Violation Errors using Update Query
I have 2 Tables. Table1 has PartNumber and PartID. However, PartID is currently empty. Table2 has PartNumber and PartID (PartID is autonumber and is the primary key). In the Update Query, I have Joined the Tables using "Only include rows where the joined fields from both fields are equal." Since I am updating Table1 where the primary key is StockID, why am I getting KeyViolations by using Table2.PartID as part of the update? It seems like it wouldn't matter if Table2 primary key is PartID since I am not updating that table, only using the data inside it. ...
