Gents, I cannot find a solution to this odd issue and before I submit a support ticket I thought I would ask the community.

? CustomDraw Message Reflection Problem (Bug?)
Hi, I am having trouble with message reflection. I am trying to set up my list control to handle CustomDraw on its own, but also let the parent override it. (That is, the control gets CustomDraw notifications to handle, then reflects them to the parent to handle after�if it wants.) I have ON_NOTIFY_REFLECT_EX(NM_CUSTOMDRAW,OnNMCustomDraw) in the control�s message map. The handler has a simple switch on the DrawStage to ask for subitem notifications, makes a change to the colors per subitem, then returns a BOOL. The parent dialog has ON_NOTIFY(NM_CUSTOMDRAW,IDC_LIST,OnNMCustomDrawList) in it...

Sum Function Help Please
I have created two Option Groups, setting up values against the radio buttons. The output from both boxes works fine (thanks to the Wizard), however when I'm creating a formula on the report, I'm unable to add the two returned values together. If I type in =([Q1]+[Q2]) then I get both numbers concatenated together (ie returned value from Q1 is 1 and returned value from Q2 is 2, the answer I get is 12 !!!!.) Interestingly if I enter =([Q1]-[Q2]) then I get the correct answer. Any help would be greatly appreciated here. I could be wrong, but it seems like access i...

Outlook private folders
I have a user that leaves messages on the server. He has a ton of personal folders stored locally. Often times, when he drags a message or contact from the message pane Outlook all but seizes up. It takes a really long time to move the message. It only happens when he is dragging the file, and does not have to be a large file to do it. I have seen it do it on a 30K file.
