MS Excel as backend/database for a website
If I use MS Excel as the backend/database for a website, how stable is it?
Can you please offer any information on the pros and cons of doing so?
When I go to save my excel 2007 worksheet which is running in compatibility
mode because I have VISTA
I get DOCUMENT NOT SAVED
can anybody help?
Your Excel 2007 is not running in compatibility mode because of Vista.
Compatibility mode means you have opens a old Excel file made with a version
that pre-dates XL 2007
Form the Start menu open Excel. It will open with a blank XL 2007 workbook
Add some data and Save

I have an application that reads & writes to CD & DVD devices. I've not
written my own device driver and have no ambitions to do so but I thought
I'd ask a question here about something that still confuses me.
The MS documentation for how to communicate with CD & DVD devices says the
CD/DVD class driver is cdrom.sys which handles all the CDROM ioctls.
Unfortunately these ioctls are inadequate for taking full advantage of CD
and especially DVD capabilities. Plus many of them work on some versions of
Windows and not on others because they have been replaced by new on...USB function driver in WinCe 5.0

We just purchased a new PC with Vista Home Premium, and we plan on buying
Microsoft RMS POS 2.0.
Will version 2.0 of RMS POS run on Vista Home Premium?
While RMS does on on Vista very well, in my opinion but you will want to make

scanners, printers. etc...

Hi, Some people on the XP Discussion told me that Widows Vista only really
runs well if it has 2Gb RAM. I know that the Upgrade advisor states a lot
less, and that the Minimum system requirements is less also.
Is this 2Gb need/want true, in what cases, and why? Is it just that Vista
runs much smoother on 2 GB RAM?
Having 2gig of RAM is a lot better than having 1 GIG or even 512MB. Go for it and
you will not regret it

To install a .NET app on XP so that it launches when the user logs in,
you had to do was add a folder named Startup to the User's Programs
Menu object the Setup project's file system, and create a shortcut in
that folder that runs the app's primary output.
This does not seem to work with Vista or Windows 7, apparently due to
the different location on the disk for the Start menu folder tree.
What's the trick to get this to work on either XP, Vista or Windows

What happens if you right click on the Unread Mail folder and click
