That's Outlook 2002. Trying it on Vista or Windows 7 by chance? It's not 
supported. There are tricks to make it work, but certain functionality 
will fail to function due to DPAPI API no longer being supported as of 
Windows Vista and above. Run a Bing (this is a Microsoft forum ;)) 
search for DPAPI for details and workarounds.

Once them is to start the program as Administrator the first time.

Is this is not the case, then you need to specify your operating system 
in your initial post next time.

Error in filed on subform

Registry Security Issue
Client has locked down users. The normal users cannot get into SO.

Most of the information is stored in the registry, so the user needs to be able to read and write to the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Retail Management System\Store Operations key. Its easier just to give them full access to this key instead of try...

How To Prevent Access Program from Opening Twice

Why would this service not be available on the versio of the software that I paid for separately? Or, am I missing something? Since the MAPI servies is running on my machine why can't I simply access it from an ...

Macro to open files from a partial file name ?
Hi, I have an external application which dumps data to text files which I then work on using excel.

Outlook 2007 Prompt for profile
I have two profiles set up. I understand that if I close Outlook, then next time I open it should prompt for which profile I'd like to use. Instead, it automatically opens whichever I chose the first time. I have checked the Mail Setting, "Prompt for a profile to be used". Note that this works fine the first time I start Outlook after having restarted - I get the prompt. It's just every time I start Outlook thereafter it assumes I want the profile I started with and does not prompt. I've also waited several minutes between restarting and it still does not prompt me....
