Thanks in advance for any suggestions
But have you tried setting up a shedule to open file1 in 5 minutes from now

There are, I think at least 3 ways that you can see how many instances you

I use CTreeCtrl::SetItemState to show overlayed images for a tree item
icon. For different states of object different overlays are used. My
question is: can I use two overlayed images simultaneously? I tried,
the last one just overwrites the first one. Of course I can create
third image that combines those two. I just want to make sure there is
no other way to implement this. (Prefer to code rather than paint).
To the best of my knowledge, no. It is also hard to come up with overlays that Play Well
Together under these conditions. I'd suggest the third-image appr...Problem Changing an Investment Name
I am trying to change an investment name and Money 2006 tells me "The name
or symbol 'TRP Spectrum Income' has already been used for a deleted
investment. Please enter a different name." When I go to delete

accept the name change? This is the first time I have run into this
situation and I have made numerous name changes in Money over the years.

I'm trying to use CComboBox, but I have some problems.

Hi there, I have a strange problem. If I DoModal a dialog it refuses
any input. It just sits on top of my application and I cannot do
anything. To activate the dialog I need to change to another
application (Alt+Tab) and switch back to my app. Then everything is
fine and I can use the dialog.
I guess I have the problem because of the way I call DoModal. I do it
so, when I right click on a view I get a popup and one option in there
triggers the execution of the dialog. Maybe that is someting I
shouldn't do. Can someone please help me out?

I have been trying to setup a friend's Commerce Bank account with no

I've also contact Microsoft, and they didn't have any advice. We have the
account numbers and pins correct, but still no go. There are two Commerce's
in the list, and we've tried both (Even though we're told to only use the
PA, NJ, DE one.) Does anyone else use this bank with success?

I am using char* everywhere in one of my application.
one of my friend suggested using CString class instead.
I searched for it in MSDN and find it a lot easier due to operators
attached with it.
But my problem is i can free a Char* anytime i want and i am sure it
will be free. but how do i know how CString is maintained internally.
What it's internal implementation is and when will it free the memory.
Any help will be appreciated.
The point of using CString over "char *" null terminated strings, is to free

I have a routine that runs when my Menu loads that checks for any
Orders due for Delivery today. Then it invites you to process those
orders now. If yes is selected, it opens the new form in ACDialog,
using a global variable to tell the order form to filter on deliveries
In the first place, when the Order form is loaded, the vertical scroll
bar is missing. If I go to the next record, it appears. If I press any
of the buttons which preview a report, they appear, but behind
everything else, so the user won't think it has worked.
Can I eliminate these two bugs?

I am trying to develop a worksheet where my sum will vary depending on
whether another cell is greater than one number, greater than or less than
another number and less than another number. A second multiplier depends on
this criteria. An example would be if cell L20was <30 then C20 would be
multiplied by cell L20. If it was <36> It would be multiplied by I20and if
it was >36 it would be multiplied by cell F20. I am trying to enter the
formula into cell M20. Hope this makes sense. Thanks in advance.
