New Form - Same Contacts

I have a designed a new Form using the Contacts Base 
form.  I have added some extra fields under the general 
tab.  I want to add them under the Detail tab but was 
unable to do so.  If you know a way to do that please let 
me know.

Also, I want to move all the existing contacts to use this 
new form, how would I do that?

You can't modify the Details tab in a contact form.

To update your existing contacts with the new form see here:

Letterhead invoice form
I have scanned a company invoice form to an Excel spreadsheet. The automatic format is a picture and I have made it transparent. I'm having trouble lining it up with the grid, getting the bottom part of the form to line up with the very bottom of the spreadsheet and it won't allow me to add data to the rows or cells. I have invoices set up to print on the blank stationary which line up just fine. However, I am trying to minimize the use of my personal printer. To use one of our large copiers for printing, I need the letterhead information to print. Too many use this copier...

Default properties for new folders
How does one set the default properties applied when creating new email folders? Currently, when I create a new folder, it is created with the AutoPreview turned on by default. I'd like to change that do that it is left off by default. It's something of a pain to create a new folder and then go in to customize it's properties.

You might want to define a new view yourself and apply that view on first use of that folder. -- Robert Sparnaaij [MVP-Outlook] www.howto-o...

Form/SubForm error while reference the object
I am a novice at Access and do not understand the VB codes. I have created a form (Software Register) with a subform (Licence No).

What I want to do is have the Software_ID_No in the main form populate the Software_ID_No in the subform, and also put it into the Licence No Table. If I enter the number manually, it works.

How do I activate the new mail button

Sub Form Assigning New Values to Old Records
I am using a subform within a form to have users update certain fields in the record where the rest remiain locked. On the Main form when the list box (which is bound to a query) is used to select the record set to display in the subform it sometimes takes an old record and assigns a new value to the record. For example it changes the Period field from 9 to 10. Taking a record created in period 9 and assigning a period ten to it which is the selection I make in the list box.

new to old
hi, A web designing company has just done us a website, and part of it includes the database of our stock. They have written/created it on access xp, but we have only got and old version of access. Can we open/use/update files written in access xp on an older version of access? thanks very much jethro Hi Jethro, It depends. By default Access 2002 (XP) uses the Access 2000 file format, so if you have Access 2000 you may be able to use the database as is.
