Hi, I'm trying to put a border around a text box, each time I try the border
is applied to the whole page. where it says apply to: my only choice is whole

Select the box and look for things about "Outlines" rather than
"Borders." (Version of Word?)

...Creat mail box delegation
Am trying to find a way to delegate the right to create mailboxes on a Exchange 2003 server. I know that if I grand the user read only rights on the exchange ORG and give them write permissions on users attributes as per KB:316792 this will work just fine. The problem is that I only want to grand the user the right to create a mail box on only one information store and not all. Is there a way I can grand a user the right to create mail boxes on only one information store??

...Links in Outlook 2003 open Save As... dialog box
I'm not sure exactly when this started happening.
Whenever I click a link in Outlook 2003 now, it opens the
Save As... dialog box as well as the Website connected to
the link. It doesn't matter what type of link it is; the
dialog always shows up with the .exe file type selected.
Does it oen the Save As dialog or does it open the Locate Link Browser
dialog? In case of the last direct it to iexplore.exe

Has anyone successfully created a form with combo boxes that

autocomplete stops completely.

tried using MDB and ACCDB formats with same results.
So frustrating....thinking of just going back to Access 2003.

In Excel 2002 and with multiple horizontal pages any open comment

on the right hand page. I drag these open comment boxes to a clear
area on the same page. I then might make a change such as changing
the print area or hiding a column. On reopening the file the comment
