2 questions - Missing 'Windows Key'
1.) My R51 ThinkPad - XP Pro SP2 - does not have a 'Windows Key'. Is
there a way to map an unused key to give it the functionality of the a
'Windows Key'? If so, is there a 'how-to' posted someplace?
2.) I recall reading a while back that IE8 had to be uninstalled
prior to applying SP3. Have not seen that requirement in any of the
SP3 upgrade cookbooks. Is that still a requirement / concern?

In the golden MFC example Scribble I found that the view repaint is rather
sluggish after I scribbled up the whole client area. If I pop up a dialog
and drag it across the painting area I can actually see the painting process
around the dialog box and the drag isn't exactly smoothy.
But there are more complicated windows application in which this slow
repainting doesn't happen. For exam, in the traditional windows paint
(mspaint.exe) program the repaint is rather fast that I simply could not

...Combining Tables #2
I have two tables with different sets of information, but they have a column

some of the ID numbers in one table are not in the other table. How do I go

one table is carried to the matching ID in the other table? Sure appreciate
your help on this - i'm under a lot of pressure to do this quickly, and
cannot afford the time to go line by line matching ID's!!! :-) Thanks!

Not specific to this forum, but the MS newsgroups have a "retention
period". Anything too old is automatically purged (which sometimes
leaves answers with no questions. IIRC this period is 6 months.
They are generally moving everything across to the web-based forums instead.

You don't because they aren't really there. Money doesn't generate Monthly
