WLM Storage Folder structure vs. Windows Explorer
There appears to be a disjoint between the WLM Storage Folders hierarchy and
Windows Explorer. This is causing me some confusion - not least for backup
purposes. It would seem that WLM folder names bear no relation to what is
seen in Explorer and that the apparent nesting structure in WLM is not
reflected in Explorer. Can anyone confirm this?
Also it would appear inadvisable to MOVE a folder within WLM. Rather, the
correct action should be CREATE a new folder then COPY the messages from old
to new folder, (DELETING the old folder afterwards). The MOVE folder

In VS 2005, I want to add a function OnInitDialog() to handle WM_INITDIALOG

VC++ 6.0 are still existent. Do we not do OnInitDialog() anymore in VS
2005? The online help still mentions WM_INITDIALOG. Your help is

I'm trying to launch an editor via OLE for a document I have. I'm
launching this from a Java applet that calls into my MFC dll via JNI.
The code I'm using to launch the editor is this:
COleDocument* pDoc = new COleDocument;
pItem = new CMyOleClientItem(pDoc);
result = pItem->CreateFromFile(tmpfile, CLSID_MyServer,
result = pItem->DoVerb(OLEIVERB_PRIMARY, NULL);
This code works nicely within a MFC dialog application, but not when
called from my DLL. The pItem->CreateFromFile method fails. I can see

I have a new client with multiple plant locations. We are discussing whether
or not to create multiple company databases for each location. In our
discovery we are leaning toward creating one database with a company segment
in the chart of accounts, and using Interfund Management to create
intracompany due to/due from entries.
Does anyone have experience processing multiple entities in a single
database? Are there any pros or cons to this type of processing?

...Advantage of COM over regular DLL ?
What are the advantages of the Component Object Model over a regular DLL for a
local machine process?
As I see it the big advantage to COM is that you can use it for different
languages and within applications. You can do this somewhat with regular
DLLs, but it's a lot more trouble.

Similar question to an earlier post, but we have moved on...
How can we open XP icons in Visual Studio. There are some sample XP icons
However if we try to open any of the 32bit icons in Visual Studio, they have
a solid black border and any drop shadows also appear solid black. The icons
look great in Windows Explorer, so what is the point of creating fancy XP

My understanding is the intent of these extensions is:
- "docx" is for documents that do NOT have macros
- "docm" is for documents that DO have macros
But what if the document's attached template contains the macros, and the
document itself doesn't?
We use a versioned template for our documentation that contains all our VBA
macros for doc automation (e.g. "CoprorateTemplate.docm").
Is it ok to save the document as a *.docx? (e.g., "document.docx"), if the
document itself contains no macros? Word allows this, but I&...Statistics on the popularity of Workgroups vs. Active Directory

I'm trying to call a dll from within Excel 2000. This is what I�m doing:in

what I get is the FALSE word in cell B1.
Inside the DLL there is only one function (Mult) that multiplies two

I read "Explore Histograms" in
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/assistance/HA011109481033.aspx and found it
educational. However, I can't see a difference in output between using a
Histogram and using the Frequency function.
Can anybody share the pros and cons of each?
I think you have missed the point. The article says that the table
produced by the ATP histogram tool is exactly the same as the table
(with same bin definitions) produced by the FREQUENCY function. The
difference is not in the values calculated, but in the fact that the
histogram table is a static t...Can't find msnp 32.dll file

I'm still trying to understand the basic flow of states between leads,
contacts, accounts and opportunities.
We are in a direct relations with our customers and _we_ call potential
clients. So leads make no sense for us, so I guess we have to start directly
with accounts. Is that correct?
I am also correct to assume that a client should be a contact in a B2C
relation and an account in a B2B relation?
Lastly, if we are in a B2C relation, we can't really use leads, which
require a Company field, can we?
Or am I completely misunderstanding the logic of the application?
