Anybody recently gotten IActiveDesktop to work?

I am trying to resolve the IActiveDesktop 'undeclared identifier' error and
I've tried everything I've ever found in googled posts with no success.

Just including "shlobj.h" doesn't work.

Including "wininet.h" before "shlobj.h" doesn't work.

Undef'ing the IE version and manually defining it to 0x400 doesn't work
(tried before including wininet.h and shlobj.h)

Et cetera...

Anyone...  Bueller...?

If statement works here, case doesn't
The code below uses a Sheet_Change event to allow or not allow other changes to the sheet. It applies to some sheets in the workbook, but not to others. The Select Case statement determines which is which and bypasses the process of looking up a password for the appropriate sheets. I tried to write a case statement to circumvent the process for all sheets with the word "Monthly" in their title, but couldn't make it work. I finally put the entire Case loop inside a If statement and it works fine. ' PUBLIC VARIABLES FOR THIS MODULE ARE DECLARED IN MODPASSW...

being asked to work magic
As a general question. i have a an excel spreadsheet with a pivot table style chart that is not actually a pivot table.

Anyway, is there a way that i can create an action so that when i double clicked on the group, a new tab would be created with information that is not the same information already in my chart?

Anybody had this problem??
Hi, Having a serious issue with Publisher 2002 and my HP Deskjet 5550. There has been no problems until I started pasting in some HI-Res pics from a mfgr. The pictures are CMYK. I guess normal pics are usually RGB. Anyway if I stick just one picture that is a CMYK color format into my document Publisher crashes when I give it the print command. I have to change the picture in Corel Photo-Paint to RGB. Then and only then will the page print out. Anybody know anything about this?

Most Recent
Good afternoon, I'm trying to run a query that will only pull the most recent entry. I have my table set up with a field (Auto-Number) i just don't know how to make it pull the most recent entry (only). thank you for your help. Autonumbers are not a 100% guaranteed to be sequential so that could be a problem. If you want to be almost 100% sure, you need a field in your table that has a data type of Date/Time and a default value of Now(). You can try the autonumber field with something like: SELECT TOP 1 YourTable.* FROM YourTable ORDER BY YourTable.Autonumber_Field DESC; ...

BeginWaitCursor does not work over dialog box
I feel like this problem should be SO easy, but I just cannot figure it out. I have a modeless dialog box that has to communicate with another program after you click OK. So, I wanted to add a wait cursor while we're waiting for the processing to finish. It seems to be working perfectly, except that the wait cursor shows up over the main window, but I still get an arrow if I have the mouse over the dialog box. I have been looking around on the internet, but haven't found this problem anywhere else. I am definitely a beginner with MFC, so maybe this is really an easy problem. But, ...

Money 2006 buttons/links not working
Recently upgraded from 2004 to 2006. Many buttons and links within 2006 don't work (i.e. do nothing when clicked). For instance in the home page in the selection bar across the top: Home,Banking,Bills,Reports,Budget work but Investing Planning and Taxes do not. Also in the home page in the left column Investing Home, Planning Home, and Taxes Home do nothing. In my portfolio, none of the 'news' links do anything (new news has arrived when mouse hovers but nothing on a click) Other links that I suspect should go to web sites (MS offers) also do nothing.

Complex conditional summing
I'm trying to use an array formula SUM with nested IFs to accomplish some complex conditional sums. If I use "COUNT" as the outermost function I get a number that appears to be correctly counting the target cells. I've added a nested "IF(ISNUMBER(range))" to the count function and verified that it returns the same number as the function without it, so it would seem all the selected cells are, in fact, numbers. I've even calculated a separate array formula of =AND(ISNUMBER (range)) which returns TRUE, again to confirm all the cells in the range contain nu...

Most Recently Used list (MRU)
My Most Recently Used list (MRU) does not always list the Most Recently Used file. Sometimes the file i just used shows up and sometimes it doesnt. I cant find a pattern to identfy why it lists.
