Thanks in advance,
JM, if you are not actually connecting to databases over the network, and
you are using an older (unpatched) version of Access 2000, you may have run
into this nasty bug:

My problem is this...I have two text boxes. I want to wrap one text box
around the other text box but nothing seems to be working. What I want to do
with the one to the left is make it into an "L" shape so that the box on the
right simply fits in the empty space of the "L" to form basically a square.
I have tried turning on all those text wrapping features with both boxes and
cannot figure out for the life of me what is happening. I have a box drawn
around the box on the right...don't know if that has something to do with it.

Greetings...according to the Excel "help" file, as well as the file extension listing, I *should* be able to read an *.wks file, but Excel insists that it cannot. I am pretty sure the file was created in Microsoft Works. Is there a converter somewhere that I can download/install? Cheers - S2
Excel can read Works 2.0, not later. You have to save them in Works as excel
files or Works 2.0 or get a commercial

We have finished goods setup in Great Plains with track on lot numbers. That
gives us the possibility to trace each lot and the system not allowed us to
go to negatives.
But we had a bad experience: if you pick an inventory item “ABC” that have
100 units available under lot number “123” and you want to make a negative
variance of 10 units for this lot, after you fill the fields in “Item
Transaction Entry” window, it is open “Item Lot Number Entry” window where
you need to enter the lot information.
Here you can pick the lot & type the quantity (middle of the screen...Weird files

The pst file is stored in the profile path of the MSOUTLOK
Since the path of the pst can be varied by the user, as can its name, ie it
neednt be in the install default path, your app would first have to search

No, you can't convert an MDE.
You have to use Access 97 with the 97 MDE,

I have Excel 2003 running alongside 2007.
Double clicking an excel file causes it to open in 2007; how do I force 2003

You most likely have to reset your file association from 2007 to 2003.
Close Excel first and On the Windows Taskbar
1) Start>Run "excel.exe /unregserver"(no quotes)>OK.
2) Start>Run "excel.exe /regserver"(no quotes)>OK.
See the space between exe and /regserver
You might have to designate a full path to excel.exe for Office 2003
In that case Start>Run "C:\your path to\office11\excel.exe" ...Word 2003, Select a block of text. How?
A word 2003 document where I want to select a 'block' of text in order to
copy it in somewhere else.
How do I mark such a 'block' ?
I assume you know how to select text in general, so there are two possible
interpretations of "block":
1. If you mean a large portion of text that requires scrolling the screen,
click at one end of the desired selection, use the scroll bar to bring the
other end in view, and Shift+click there.
2. If you mean a vertical column portion of a wider block of text, use

doesnt get marked as read anymore. I have tried to change

very anoying for me.
Is this a bug or has some setting changed with the SP?

I want to allow the group Everyone to have read-only access to a calendar in

particular user). However this also allows people to to do everything (ie:
they become read-write users).
I notice that every mailbox in the system has 'Read permissions' granted to

When I use a pulldown on a webpage, the text is not showing fully. It looks

it looks like the word "search" is showing the top half only. It's hard to
explain. It takes a word such as microsoft and the bottom of the m and the i

It sounds like the path to your labels folder is not correct. Check your

Make sure it points to the actual folder where your label formats reside.

I have a small program that drops text from a Word table into Excel

Although Paste Special as Text should insert the contents of the

Excel 2003 splits the data when it meets a New Line or Carriage Return
and drops anything after it down to row below.

is it possible to have scrolling text going across a

I thought that was a "given" with any mouse that had a wheel.
Depress the wheel and see if you don't get a .four directional arrow icon.
Move the mouse in the direction you wish to scroll.
