Changing Embedded to a Picture
Client reports he uses many documents with blank areas that are Word
embedded documents. If co-worker double clicks, he gets a regular Word
looking page with Word's editing options. However, co-workers sometimes
single click, start type (now going into the formula bar), then erase it and
hit enter. The embedded data is lost and the area becomes a picture.

clicking on an embedded object so they can close without saving. Is there

other 3 were ok.
The data source is a Select Query.

For example, suppose if it is a TreeView. "AfterSelect" occurs both
for programmatic selection (TreeView.SelectedNode = something;) or
user selection (by mouse click or keyboard navigation). When the user
selects a node, then the program should change the model accordingly,
but when the model is changed by itself the program should change the
selected node to reflect the change. Not only for TreeView, but this
is generally the same for other UI controls. Another example is the
CheckedChanged of the CheckBox.
But sometimes I need to distinguish those two kinds. I have looke...Outlook slow

This information service has not been configured. Select an existing file to

when I try to open Microsoft Outlook. I previously used Outlook Express and
it worked fine. How do I set it up?
You will need to configure a mail account and type in all of the correct
settings. If you tell us the mode of Outlook 2000 (Check Help->About,
second line should say either Corporate or Workgroup or Internet Mail Only)
someone can point you in the right direction.
