I have a spreadsheet that needs to be used down in the plant area where
people don't know very much about computers. I'm trying to make it easier
for them by letting them just have to open the spreadsheet through a shortcut
and then I'm hoping that I can just have the find dialog box pop up right
away without them doing anything so that they can just find what they are
looking for. It's a very large spreadsheet so it would be very helpful for
them to be able to do this. Is this possible?
You would need a macro for that it also means that they have to enable macros

always in the same places?
Please, help me. I would be appreciate.

I am having a dailog based application in which another dialog is embedded
as a child.The settings of this dialog are child with no border and visible.
The child dialog is created using the "Create" function of CDialog and hence
is modeless. On press of Esc or Enter the dialog gets destroyed. I want to
override this normal behaviour. How can this be done? !!!
Thanks & regards,
a couple possibilities.
1. change the accelerator key definitions to remove those key mappings
2. override the onok and oncancel member functions of cdialog and make yours

I am using OpenGL in my MFC app. The problem is when I resize the
window from the left or top border the whole scene of my OpenGL moves
even before my OnPaint event handler is called and when my OnPaint is
called after this it repaints the scene so this produces a flicker. If,
however I resize the window from the right or bottom border this
problem doen't occur. Can anybody please tell me what is happening?

You can resize a window by using the SetWindowPos or MoveWindow APIs.

Which control has the focus?
In a project developped with Visual Cpp version 5 & 6, it's the last control

An other project developped with Visual Studio .Net, it's always the
first control (first in tabulation order) which has the focus.
With or without MFC, the behaviour is the same.

Hi, Windows has recently been crashing due to extremely low resources every
time I exited Excel 2000. This doesn't happen with any other application
(Office or otherwise), so I think it has something to do with Excel, as
opposed to Windows. I've both repaired and reinstalled Office to no avail.
I'm guessing that there is some Excel process running in the background that
just overwhelms the system when I exit the app. I'm hoping that someone
here has had a similar experience and found a solution short of wiping
Office out completely and reinstalling. Thanks for your input.
