A difficult VBA question...a challenge

ok, I'm not a pro, but this task seems like an extremely
difficult task - so hopefully someone is up to the challenge!

I have a MS Access 2003 database.  I would like to use
VBA to accomplish the following tasks (keep in mind this
is originating from Access and not Outlook)...

I would like to take an email address and instead of creating a new message
to it I would like to REPLY to the last one that was received
from that address.  Obviously the only real difference is that the
body of the message from the previous received message will
be included.  Keep in mind I am talking about sending a message
programatically (although it needs to use Outlook as a client).

DO NOT TELL ME to post this thread somewhere else.  I realize
that one could say this is an Access issue and not an Outlook issue,
however, I already tried the Access forum and I think this forum is
a reasonable place to ask this question.  After all, both applications
have VBA in common.

Question about Outlook 2003 Disk
I just bought one of the stand alone office products, Microsoft Outlook 2003. On the face of the disk it reads, "Microsoft Office Outlook Standard 2003" Can anyone tell me what the standard part of the title means? I assumed there was only one version of outlook 2003, I don't recall seeing standard, plus or premium versions of the program on Microsofts website. I bought the software from softwareoutlet.com, who had very high ratings so I wen't with them because they seemed like they could be trusted. Did I get what I was suppose to get or what?

Very difficult query!
Hello All I have spent most of today on this and can't get it right: I hope someone out there can help! I need a query that will give a person's retirement date (RD), according to their date of birth (DOB).

Basic Database Design Question
I'm setting up a new database with access 97. It will include several daily extract files (excel format) from several old mainframe machines. I have several ideas on how to do this, but none of them address the repetition of data in fields that could be referenced on another table. If I make reference tables, It decreases the data size significantly, but doesn't import the next day's excel file well. some background: there are 7000 unique client numbers, names, diagnoses, and other identifying information (2mb per extract). Each day I will receive an excel file that is nearly i...

PivotTable "show data value as" question

Excel File Question
Rarely use Excel and would ask what is the difference between an excel spreadsheet and a workbook. Much thanks for an informed response. Its just terminology.

Two field entry questions
I don't know if VBA will be involved, but... I have a Word document with some tables and some of the cells of that table should have text entered. What I'd really like to have those cells which require entry to initially be yellow in color, but whenever text is entered (either when the cursor has left the table cell, or also acceptable when any text appears in the table cell) the background color should go away. My second question is that there are some places in my document where I have entered spaces with an underline to indicate that it should be filled out. However, wh...

Questions about character entities in XML and PCI security compliance
Hi all. This is a rather long posting but I have some questions concerning the usage of character entities in XML documents and PCI security compliance. The company I work for is using a third party ecommerce service for hosting its online store. A few months ago this third party commerce site began using PGP file encryption on XML files (e.g. web orders) transferred to us as part of the ongoing PCI security compliance. Basically we only need to add a PGP decryption process before we can parse the incoming XML files so there should not have been any technical issue. However, we noticed tha...

Bills Summary Question
Hello, I just bought Microsoft Money 2005 Standard, which is an upgrade from Money 2000 for me.
